Extended Call For Papers 2010 Melbourne Historical Journal
Submissions Due: June 30th 2010
Published since 1961, Melbourne Historical Journal (MHJ) is a refereed journal for the publication of Australian and Aotearoa/New Zealand postgraduate work in History, Classics and Archaeology. It is open to new approaches and aims to present original postgraduate work to a wide and responsive readership.
Every article submitted to MHJ is eligible for the Greg Dening Memorial Prize for the best postgraduate work in History, Classics or Archaeology. The prize will be offered to honour the wide-ranging contribution of Emeritus Professor Greg Dening to MHJ over the years. We are delighted to be able to offer this prize, and do so with the strong support of Greg's wife, Donna Merwick, and with the generous assistance of the School of Historical Studies Fellows.
The Greg Dening Memorial Prize will be awarded to the postgraduate article which best engages with the broad themes and methodologies that were resonant in Greg's own 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: http://www.history.unimelb.edu.au/mhj/Submissions.html
Articles and queries may be submitted to MHJ via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
