Submission Guidelines

The editors invite submissions that approach history as a critical endeavor. We are particularly interested in essays that press the boundaries of history’s disciplinary norms. In that spirit, we also welcome work from scholars thinking through the past in fields outside of history.
We want to publish articles that:
  • examine the historical construction of categories of knowledge;
  • analyze how relationships of power are established and maintained, and how history has served to legitimize or challenge them;
  • are explicitly theorized without being restricted to the discipline’s conventional categorizations of method and subject (i.e., social, cultural, intellectual, legal, or political theory).
Manuscripts should be about 9,000 words, including notes, and are accepted on a rolling basis. Further submission guidelines are available at historyofthepresent.org.
