Aims & Scope
The Anishinaabe, the ancestral Native-Americans of Lake Superior, refer to the Lake as Gitchi-gami, the big sea. They, like all past and present inhabitants of the region, recognize how Superior impacts the people and the land. Upper Country seeks to continue this recognition through academic articles that examine and explore the history and places of the Lake Superior region; broadly defined as its adjoining states and Canadian province. We welcome interdisciplinary papers that advance our understanding of the area. Subjects include but are not limited to: history, anthropology, sociology, political science, economics, geography, education, literature, photography and other intellectual pursuits.
