Melbourne Historical Journal is pleased to announce the Inaugural Greg Dening Memorial Prize for the best postgraduate work in History. Published since 1961, Melbourne Historical Journal (MHJ), is a refereed journal for the publication of Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand postgraduate work in history.
Every article submitted in our extended call for papers is eligible for the prize.
Articles will be read for the ways that they engage with broad themes and methodologies that were resonant with Greg's own published work and ideas. These include (but are not limited to):
Work that places a high emphasis on creativity
The engagement with cross-cultural history, particularly between European and indigenous peoples
Work that emphasises performance and the performative nature of historical writing
Work that emphasises the use of metaphor
Interdisciplinarity, particularly between History and Anthropology
Work that explores an element of religious history
Articles that are in some way reflective in nature and, like Greg's own work, display a sharp awareness of audience
Journal articles should be between 5000-7000 words and constitute an original piece of research. Manuscripts should not be under review or scheduled for publication by any other journal, and should be substantially different from other published work. The collective asks that all manuscripts conform to the MHJ style guide, which can be found on the MHJ website at:
Articles submitted for publication pass through a two-stage process of review. First, all articles are read by the collective, which decides whether or not to send the article to be refereed. Then articles are sent to two referees who are experts in the relevant field of historical inquiry. If both referees agree that the article is of a standard worthy of publication then the article is accepted.
Articles and queries should be submitted to MHJ via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
