Call for Submissions: Critical Studies in History Journal
Call for Papers Deadline:
Founded in 2008, _Critical Studies in History_ (ISSN 1943-0795) 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. Intervening beyond 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. 2, No. 1 "The Project of Modernity" was published in June 2009 and can be accessed online at http://history.theory.googlepages.com/csh21

We are now inviting submissions for the second issue of the second volume, with the theme "Cultural Values," scheduled to appear in December 2009. The deadline for submission is OCTOBER 15, 2009.
Authors are expected to follow these guidelines:
1. Submit manuscripts to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Expressions of interest in becoming a manuscript reviewer for the journal are also welcome.
