CALL FOR PAPERS: “Journal of History and Culture, First Issue”
Journal of History and Culture (JHAC) (Deadline: May 1, 2012).

The Journal of History and Cultures (JHAC) is issuing a Call for Papers and welcomes article submissions on subjects in the fields of history and cultures within a broad geographic and chronological range.

We are particularly keen to encourage articles that consider and engage with historical, cultural, political, social, and theoretical research in new and original ways. JHAC is a multi- and inter-disciplinary journal appealing for articles promoting the interchange of perspectives and ideas to foster lively and productive academic debate. The deadline for submissions is 1 May 2012.

JHAC is a fully peer-reviewed journal and is an excellent new publishing opportunity both for postgraduates and established academics. We encourage both article and review submissions. Articles should be 5,000-7,000 words in length, and full submission guidelines can be found at www.historyandcultures.com. Reviews should be 750-1,000 words in length.

Review essays should be in-depth engagements with recent books which develop an argument to complement the reading of the text. A list of books available for review will be appearing on our website; alternatively, you can contact our reviews editor directly to request a specific book to review at jhac@contacts.bham.ac.uk.

Finally, we invite you to join the JHAC community on both Facebook and Twitter @UOBJHAC for regular updates. We are offering a £50 prize for the best article.

Please contact the editors at jhac@contacts.bham.ac.uk with all submissions or if you have any questions.
