CFP: Journal of Imperial and Post-Colonial Historical Studies
The editors of the Journal of Imperial and Post-Colonial Historical Studies (JIPCHS) seek to encourage new and different questions of long-standing intellectual problems, including the application of methods used by scholars from a wide array of disciplines, as well as the application of historical methods to those disciplines. We have chosen the themes of imperial and post-colonial studies because they lend themselves readily to a broad range of perspectives and approaches, and, significantly, because they are applicable to every region where a human society has developed at some point in time. They encourage discussions of state formation and diplomacy, yet do not preclude issues of race, gender, or class.
JIPCHS is a new semi-annual journal for recent Ph.D.'s and graduate students to expand the limits of colonial and post-colonial studies by incorporating interdisciplinary methods into their works. Comparative approaches are especially encouraged. JIPCHS welcomes a wide range of academic inquiry from scholars around the world. Contributors address issues of statecraft, social change, cultural interaction, and economic relations within the historical context of imperialism and colonialism in any region of the world and in any time period, from antiquity to the present. Topics for consideration include, but are not limited to: colonization and decolonization, domination and resistence, film/cinema, foreign policy, information media (print and/or electronic), intellectual movements/history, literature, medicine/medical history, methodologies, migration, missionaries and/or religious change, servitude, state formation and expansion, women and states/law.
In an effort to include the works of scholars whose native language is not English, or who are multilingual, JIPCHS will accept manuscripts submitted in any language. The author, however, must provide a copy of an English translation. JIPCHS will publish the English language text in the journal and post the original language text on its web site. Foreign language manuscripts must meet the same criteria stated for articles submitted to JIPCHS.
JIPCHS is a fully-refereed publication that uses a double-blind (i.e., anonymous) process to evaluate manuscript submissions. Manuscripts will be sent to at least two scholars and/or advanced graduate students who are specialists in the field addressed by the manuscript. Copies and/or summaries of the anonymous readers' reports will be sent to authors. Evaluations, accordingly, will require three to five months, although in some exceptional cases they may take longer. Copies of manuscripts will be returned only to those authors who provide self-addressed, stamped envelopes. If a manuscript is accepted for publication it will be edited for organization, clarity, and consistency. Copy-edited versions will be sent to the authors for approval before the finished article goes to press.
Send three (3) copies of the manuscript and all correspondence to:
Journal of Imperial and Post-Colonial Historical Studies
