Mission Statement


The Journal of History and Cultures (JHAC) is a peer-reviewed journal that communicates pioneering new research in history and cultures within a multi- and inter-disciplinary forum. Drawing on the latest historical, cultural, political, social, and theoretical analytical research, JHAC’s overarching purpose is to foster lively and productive academic debate.

The emphasis on a wide variety of disciplines and subject matter creates a mutually enriching sphere for the interchange of perspectives and ideas. JHAC has a broad scope in both geographic and chronological terms, presenting studies with a range of local, regional, national and global foci from the medieval to contemporary era. This provides the opportunity for research from global contributors to enter a dialogue with the readership in the form of reviews, letters and an online discussion forum.

Demanding the highest standard for submissions of articles and reviews, JHAC stands for cutting-edge scholarly innovation.
