Call for Papers: Korean Histories

image: Korean Histories logoKore­an His­to­ries is a peer-reviewed on-line aca­d­e­m­ic jour­nal that has recent­ly pub­lished issue 3.2 (avail­able for down­load­ing from www.koreanhistories.org). The edi­tors are now call­ing for papers for issue 4.1, sched­uled for pub­li­ca­tion in Novem­ber-Decem­ber.

Kore­an His­to­ries focus­es on his­to­ri­og­ra­phy as a social process in Korea and is devot­ed to research that heav­i­ly relies on sources oth­er than the con­ven­tion­al writ­ten his­tor­i­cal sources and high­lights the role of these uncon­ven­tion­al sources in the for­ma­tion of his­tor­i­cal visions of groups, com­mu­ni­ties, and both non­pro­fes­sion­al and pro­fes­sion­al his­to­ri­ans.

The edi­tors of Kore­an His­to­ries invite sub­mis­sions based on orig­i­nal research respond­ing to the theme of his­to­ri­og­ra­phy as social prac­tice in Korea in the broad­est sense pos­si­ble, regard­less of peri­od, sub­ject, or angle. Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary or com­par­a­tive sub­mis­sions are wel­come, as are, par­tic­u­lar­ly, sub­mis­sions that rely on uncon­ven­tion­al sources (such as music, art, reli­gious con­cepts, movies, the inter­net, blogs, adver­tise­ments or lit­er­ary texts), which-–copyright laws permitting–may be pub­lished along­side the arti­cle in dig­i­tal for­mat.
