CfP Journal of Historical Fictions

The Journal of Historical Fictions, journal of the international Historical Fictions Research Network, is currently accepting submissions.

Narrative constructions of the past constitute a powerful discursive system for the production of cognitive and ideological representations of identity, agency, and social function, and for the negotiation of conceptual relationships between societies in different times and lived experience. The licences of fiction, especially in mass culture, define a space in which the pursuit of narrative and meaning is permitted to slip the chains of sanctioned historical truths to explore the deep desires and dreams that lie beneath all constructions of the past. Historical fictions measure the gap between the pasts we are permitted to know and those we wish to know, interacting between the meaning-making narrative and the narrative-resistant nature of the past.

The Journal welcomes proposals from disciplines as diverse as archaeology, literature, film, history, media studies, art history, musicology, reception studies, and museum studies. We encourage ambitious approaches of high quality, using new methodologies to support research into larger trends. The Journal aims to foster more theoretically informed understandings of the mode across historical periods, cultures, media and languages.

Articles should be between 6000 and 8000 words, exclusive of notes and Works Cited. For submission guidelines, see http://historicalfictionsjournal.org.

All enquiries concerning the journal should be sent to:
mail@historicalfictionsjournal.org
