The Historical Journal of Massachusetts (HJM) is currently seeking articles about any aspect of Massachusetts history, although we are especially interested in articles that illuminate the roots of contemporary social issues and social problems. HJM is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year by the History Department at Westfield State College. As the only scholarly journal devoted exclusively to the history and culture of Massachusetts, HJM has filled an important role since its founding in 1972. The journal is now under a new editor. We are seeking to upgrade and expand our offerings.
We cover all topics and aspects of the Commonwealth’s past —from its Native American heritage through its colonial and revolutionary roots to the present. We strive to include all fields of history, including political, social, cultural, economic, labor, legal, and immigration. We also seek to highlight the unique histories of different groups and populations, including women’s history; ethnic and religious studies; and the diverse experiences of the state’s many minority groups. We also include studies relating to Massachusetts culture, literature, arts, and humanities.
We welcome articles from novice historians as well as established scholars. We are also seeking book reviewers, peer reviewers and anyone who might be interested in serving on our new editorial board, along with new subscribers ($12 annually). For more info (including PDFs of recent articles and an index) see our website at http://www.wsc.mass.edu/mhj/ or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
