CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE JOURNAL HISTORIA ACTUAL ONLINE / IRELAND AND ITS TROUBLES, A WIDE PERSPECTIVE
Call for Papers Date:
While Europe attempts to continue growing and feeling content as a unit, it seems to have forgotten the conflicts experienced in the past and the conflicts currently taking place in the very heart of the most industrialized countries in the world. This is the reason why we think it is extremely important to analyse historical, social and political consequences of the partition of Ireland. To understand the Irish conflict is to understand most of the conflicts related to nationalities, politics, territories and religions, given that it is difficult to find historical situations in which these factors have interacted in the same way.
The digital journal “Historia Actual Online”, based in Cádiz, invites you to contribute articles related to the Irish conflict. The articles can address such issues as historical perspectives on the conflict, analysis of the origins of different groups in the conflict, their interrelations and their ways of expression (political parties, paramilitary organizations) as well as their association with different political options. The present-day situation of the confrontation can be analysed through images related to migrations and their influence, demographic variation in different communities, which can be extremely important in the next few years, or in the changes in the patterns of committing violent acts in the last few years.
“Historia Actual Online” (ISSN 1697-3305) is a free, open-access journal. Focused on the subjects related to contemporary history, the journal accepts all types of multidisciplinary approaches. We accept contributions in English, Spanish, French, Italian and German. The deadline is set for the 15th of September, 2008. More information about the journal, its editorial board, submission guidelines for authors and previous issues of the journal can be found online at: http://www.historia-actual.com/hao/pbhao.asp?idi=ENG.
Please submit the articles (Word- or Word-compatible-format), accompanied by a brief c.v. to firstname.lastname@example.org, for any further inquiries, do not hesitate to contact us.
