EXTENDED DEADLINE (14 Nov 2013): Call for Papers


Emotions in History: Ceræ, an Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies would like to invite submissions for its inaugural issue on the theme ‘Emotions in History’, sponsored by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions. Submissions are welcomed from scholars working in any discipline related to the medieval and early modern world, including representations of the medieval and early modern eras in later culture.

Emotions drive individual actions and effect broader social change. The way they are felt, expressed and performed evolves over time, and in exploring the way these emotions were experienced in their historical context, we can both gain a better understanding of how past societies understood their experience, and how this has influenced the way we experience emotions today.

We are particularly interested in submissions which engage with the growing field of the digital humanities, and are happy to work with authors to accommodate any requirements involving multimedia or alternative formatting. We also encourage submissions from authors working on emotions in performance and material culture. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by qualified experts in the field.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions and the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the University of Western Australia are generously funding a prize for the best article published in this issue.

Articles should be approximately 5000-7000 words and formatted according to the Cerae Style SheetPlease include a 200 word abstract along with your article. Submissions should be made using our Open Journal Systems Website or sent to editorcerae@gmail.com by 14 November 2013.
