Volume 1 (2014): Emotions in History Launch!

Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies is delighted to present its inaugural issue on the theme of ‘Emotions in History’, now available online at https://ceraejournal.com/volume-1-2014/. The contributions to this volume cover an exciting (and impressive) range of subjects which is a testament to the complexity and scope of this topic—watch this blog for future feature discussions on individual articles. We are also pleased to be able to present a number of reviews of both books and digital humanities projects.

We are also happy to announce that the deadline for submissions to Volume 2 has now been extended to 15 October, and that we are currently accepting both non-themed contributions, and submissions on the theme of ‘Transitions, Fractures and Fragments’. Submissions can be made online. Thanks to the generosity of the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at UWA, we will be offering a prize of $400 for the best article by a graduate student or early career researcher published in this volume.
