CFP: Global Histories: A Student Journal

Are you a graduate student working on global history themes and looking for an outlet for your work? Consider publishing in Global Histories, the student-run journal of the Global History MA program at the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Freie Universität Berlin. More information on the latest call for submissions follows:

In recent years, global history has become one of the most ambitious and promising strands of historical research. This approach targets relations, flows, and actors that transcend borders long-assumed to be stable and impenetrable. It calls attention to the importance of transnational, trans-regional, or trans-local connections and their influence on the past.

Our successful international Global History Student Conference 2016 acts as the point of departure for this issue, showcasing how global history is conceptualized and realized in different cultural contexts around the world. To that end, we encourage the submission of any historical or transdisciplinary research related to (or critical of) global history. We suggest the following themes, which represent our conference panels, as a starting point for consideration:

• Decentralizing the Cold War
• Global History before 1750
• Methodology and Marginalization
• Global Urban History
• Gender, Body, and Power
• Transnational Ideologies and Networks
• Memory Studies
• Religion
• Postcolonial Studies
• Visual Representations and Art History
