The Journal of Festive Studies, a new peer-reviewed journal published on H-Celebration (https://networks.h-net.org/h-celebration), invites submissions for its first issue, scheduled for March 2018.
The journal’s stated aim is to draw together all academics who share an interest in festivities, including but not limited to holiday celebrations, family rituals, carnivals, religious feasts, processions and parades, and civic commemorations.
The editors in chief — Dr. Ellen Litwicki, Professor of History at the State University of New York at Fredonia and Aurélie Godet, Associate Professor of US History at Paris Diderot University — welcome submissions of original research and analysis from both established and emerging scholars worldwide. Besides traditional academic essays, authors may submit video and photo essays, archival notes, opinion pieces, as well as contributions that incorporate digital media such as visualizations and interactive timelines and maps. Academic essays should be between 6,000 and 12,000 words; other pieces should be between 2,000 and 5,000 words. When submitting, please indicate whether the work is to be peer-reviewed as an article or whether you would like to offer something in a different format.
All texts should be sent by November 1 2017 to [email protected] along with the author’s bio and an abstract of c. 250 words. Please contact Ellen Litwicki ([email protected]) and Aurélie Godet ([email protected]) with any questions.
Post expires on Wednesday November 15th, 2017
