CFP: Limina: A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies

Call for Papers: 2024 ‘Crisis’ Special Issue

Deadline: 15 March 2024

Following our 2023 conference, Limina: A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies is inviting articles for peer review for its forthcoming special issue on the conference theme ‘Crisis’, scheduled for publication in late 2024. We welcome scholarly contributions of 5000-7000 words written for a non-specialist audience.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Social, political, historic, economic, ecological, psychological, or identity crises
  • Theorising crises
  • Media depictions of crises
  • Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic studies
  • War and conflict studies
  • Extremism studies
  • Disability studies
  • The intersection of overlapping crises and their impact
  • The ‘polycrisis’ or ‘everything crisis’

Limina also accepts unsolicited submissions of critical essays, long form literary reviews, and academically informed reflections from across Australia and the world. They can range from 3000-4000 words and must be written in a scholarly and professional manner abiding by Limina’s style guide. Subject matters can be broad for our general edition, but would need to dovetail with the theme of ‘Crisis’ for our special edition.

Limina encourages HDR students and early career researchers (ECRs) to submit papers.
