Call for Papers: _Terrae Incognitae_, Journal of the Society for the History of Discoveries
Call for Papers Date:
Terrae Incognitae, an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published annually by the Society for the History of Discoveries, seeks contributions for its 2011 and 2012 issues. 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.
Beginning with the 2010 volume, Terrae Incognitae will be published by Maney Publishing, UK, with online content available. By 2012, the journal will be published twice each year. See http://www.maney.co.uk/index.php/journals/tin
Contributions submitted by October 15, 2009 could be selected for the 2010 volume; contact the editor for details.
