In our tenth-anniversary year, Ceræ invites article submissions on the theme of memory. Memory is widely theorised in medieval and early modern studies in connection to how societies remember, perceive, and invent the past. Topics might include:
- Mnemonic objects, landscapes, rituals, prose and verse, etc.
- The interfaces between orality and literacy
- Cultural memory theory and societal storehouses of experience
- Intercultural contact and the transmission of ideas
- Education and memoria
- The modern reception of medieval and early modern pasts
We invite submissions encompassing all aspects of the medieval and early modern world without geographical restriction. As an interdisciplinary journal, Ceræ encourages submissions from archaeology, art history, historical ecology, literature, linguistics, intellectual history, musicology, social studies, and beyond.
Full length articles should be 5000-8000 words, excluding references. Ceræ also accepts short notes, creative writing, and review essays of up to 3000 words for our varia section. Themed submissions must be submitted by 15 March 2023. For submission instructions, please visit our page on submission guidelines.
We also accept non-themed submissions throughout the year. Ceræ particularly encourages submissions from postgraduate and early career researchers, and offers a $200 (AUD) annual prize for the best postgraduate/ECR essay. Further information on our annual essay prize can be found here.
