TERRAE INCOGNITAE, the annual, interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal of the Society for the History of Discoveries, is looking for contributors for its 2009 volume. The aim of TERRAE INCOGNITAE is to examine the history and impact of geographic exploration and cross-cultural interaction around the globe prior to the modern era. Recent articles have ranged from the use of DNA technology to track the movement of chickens and thus populations in pre-historic Oceania to the role of the Order of Christ in furthering 16th-century Portuguese expansion; from the significance of inter-cultural adoption or rejection of clothing for understanding cross-cultural interaction to Marco Polo’s influence on cartography. Notes for Contributors and our Style Sheet can be found on the Society's Web site: www.sochisdisc.org. While we take submissions at any time, to ensure consideration for the 2009 volume please submit your article by the August 15 deadline.
