Critical Studies in History (ISSN 1943-0795) is the official online journal of the History and Theory Reading Group based in New York. Founded in 2008, the journal publishes essays, position papers, research articles, and critical perspective pieces that explore the role of critical theory in history and the place of history in theoretical critiques. Not limited to the philosophy of history, the journal particularly favors studies that illuminate specific historical problems or make innovative historiographical interventions. The editors invite submissions of manuscripts appropriate to the aims of this open-access online journal. Manuscripts should not exceed 8,500 words and will be peer reviewed in a double-blinded procedure.
Vol. 1 "History in Theory / Theory in History" was published in December 2008 and can be accessed at http://history.theory.googlepages.com/csh1
We now invite submissions for the second volume, with the theme "The Project of Modernity," scheduled to appear in 2009. The deadline for submission is JANUARY 31, 2009.
The author is expected to follow these guidelines:
1. Submit manuscripts to email@example.com as an electronic attachment in Microsoft Word.
2. Include a short paragraph of author's biography along with a paper abstract of around 150-250 words.
3. All manuscripts should conform to the footnotes citation system of the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed. Do not use the author-date system. Please ensure that all quotations, titles, names, and dates are double-checked for accuracy.
4. Indicate in writing that the submission has not been previously published, nor is it under consideration for publication elsewhere.

All issues of the journal will be published online in paginated PDF files. The journal is intended to provide more opportunities than traditional history journals in publishing historiographically-oriented pieces that bring critical theory to bear on the practice of historical scholarship.
