  • Urban Institute scholars from diverse disciplines tackle a simple-to-state, hard-to-answer question: How can solutions to our national and state budget crises fit the facts about children in the United States? In their responses, the contributors wrestle with recent and approaching economic and demographic challenges in different ways and bring very different experiences to bear.

CHILDREN OF IMMIGRANTS

  • Children of Immigrants: Growing National and State Diversity – by Karina Fortuny and Ajay Chaudry
  • Between 2000 and 2009, minorities’ share of U.S. children under age 18 increased from 38 to 44 percent, driven by growth in the number of Hispanic and Asian children and a decline in white children. Children of immigrants accounted for most of the growth. This brief highlights trends in the changing demographics of the U.S. child population nationally and across states.

     

  • Children of Immigrants: The Changing Face of Metropolitan America – by Ajay Chaudry and Karina Fortuny
  • Of the 17 million children of immigrants in the United States, 84 percent live in the 100 largest metropolitan areas. The share of minority children reached 51 percent in 2009 in these metros, many of which became “majority minority.”

Miranda

Miranda is an independently reviewed scholarly e-journal. Each thematic issue includes a wide range of articles on the social and cultural practices of the English-speaking world, and provides a forum for debate and scholarly exchanges. Some issues will be supervised by guest editors.

Miranda also welcomes contributions – from classic scholarly articles to multimedia presentations – unrelated to the thematic issue : literature, linguistics, history, politics, sociology, anthropology, esthetics, with the aim of encouraging the broadest possible spectrum of approaches, involving gender, ethnicity, ideology, and theory.

Miranda publishes both solicited and unsolicited articles. We encourage submissions mainly in English, but also in French, or any other language, provided a translation is submitted in either French or English.

It is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Please click here to access.

Journal of Transnational American Studies (JTAS)

The Journal of Transnational American Studies (JTAS) is a peer-reviewed online journal that seeks to broaden the interdisciplinary study of American cultures in a transnational context. JTAS is the first academic journal explicitly focused on what Shelley Fisher Fishkin in her 2004 American Studies Association presidential address called the “transnational turn” in American Studies. JTAS is sponsored by UC Santa Barbara’s American Cultures and Global Contexts Center and Stanford University’s Program in American Studies.

JTAS functions as an open-access forum for Americanists in the global academic community, where scholars are increasingly interrogating borders both within and outside the nation and focusing instead on the multiple intersections and exchanges that flow across those borders.

Moving beyond disciplinary and geographic boundaries that might confine the field of American Studies, JTAS is a new critical conduit that brings together innovative transnational work from diverse, but often
disconnected, sites in the U.S. and abroad. In order to facilitate the broadest possible cultural conversation about transnational American Studies, the journal will be available without cost to anyone with access to the Internet.

JTAS brings together the vital contributions to transnational American Studies from scholars who focus on topics as diverse as cultural studies, film and new media, literature, visual arts, performance studies, music, religion, history, politics, and law, as well as scholarship that deals with ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, and class.
