Call For Papers


Call for Submissions – Issue 9

The Journal of History and Cultures (JHAC) is inviting the submission of articles or book reviews for Issue 9. JHAC is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to pioneering new research in history and cultures. Drawing on the latest historical, cultural, political, social, and theoretical analytical research, JHAC’s overarching purpose is to foster lively and productive academic debate.

We welcome articles on a broad range in both geographic and chronological terms, including local, regional, national and/or global foci from medieval right through to contemporary periods. Issue 9 of the Journal of History and Cultures will have a central organising theme of ‘Home’. This can be interpreted in many different ways, and is temporally relevant when we consider what the concept of home means presently, and what it meant in the past. Thus, the editors invite submissions on any aspect of ‘home’ across history and cultures including, but not limited to, the following themes:

  • Being at, moving, or losing a home.
  • Diasporas
  • Communities, networks, and ways of framing ‘home’
  • Spatial analysis of rooms or objects within the home (e.g. Bedrooms, furniture, etc.)
  • Architecture
  • Activities which relate to, or are done in, the home
  • Family, children, other people in the home, and societies
  • Resistance to, or in, the home
  • Home fronts
  • Memory
  • Emotion
  • Nation and national identity framed as ‘home’

Articles should be between 5,000 and 7,000 words long (not including bibliography and footnotes). Book reviews should be between 750 and 1,000 words.

Submissions should be emailed to by no later than 31st July 2018. Please ensure that you have included all relevant contact information, including your name, the title of your manuscript, your professional or institutional affiliation and a permanent e-mail address. Please note that, if relevant submission and formatting guidelines are not met, manuscripts will not be deemed eligible for publication. More information on submission can be found at
