Contributions are invited from Australian and New Zealand postgraduate students in history for publication in volume 42, 2014 of the Melbourne Historical Journal (MHJ). Published since 1961, the MHJ is a refereed journal for the publication of postgraduate research in all aspects of history. It is open to new approaches and aims to present original postgraduate work to a wide readership. We are particularly interested in submissions that are relevant to this year’s theme, but postgraduate articles on any historical topic will be considered for publication.
The theme for 2014 is “Neglected Histories”. This edition aims to shine a light on themes, periods, geographical regions, historical methods, and historiographical approaches that have either received little study, or have fallen into disuse. We also welcome submissions that use neglected sources or ideas to reappraise more popular fields of enquiry. Submissions need not dwell on why a topic has suffered neglect, though such approaches are encouraged – our aim is to invigorate discussion and showcase research into fields that are not currently in the spotlight.
The extended deadline for submission is 30 June 2014. Journal articles should be between 5,000–7,000 words and constitute an original piece of research. Manuscripts should not be under review or scheduled for publication by any other journal, and should be substantially different from other published work. Every article submitted to MHJ is eligible for the Greg Dening Memorial Prize. Details of the prize can be found on the MHJ website.
We also welcome expressions of interest from postgraduates with regards to book review submissions. Journal articles, reviews, and queries may be submitted to MHJ via email.
