Emotions in History: Ceræ, an Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies would like to invite submissions for its inaugural issue on the theme ‘Emotions in History’, sponsored by the ARC Centre for the History of the Emotions. Submissions are welcomed from scholars working in any discipline related to the medieval and early modern era, including representations of medievalism or the early modern era in later culture.

Emotions drive individual actions and effect broader social change. The way they are felt, expressed and performed evolves over time, and in exploring the way these emotions were experienced in their historical context, we can both gain a better understanding of how past societies understood their experience, and how this has influenced the way we experience emotions today.

We are particularly interested in submissions which engage with the growing field of the digital humanities, and are happy to work with authors to accommodate any requirements involving multimedia or alternative formatting. We also encourage submissions from authors working on emotions in performance culture and in material culture. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by qualified experts in the field.

The Centre for the History of the Emotions is generously funding a prize for the best article published in this issue. Articles of approximately 5000-7000 words should be submitted as a word document to editorcerae@gmail.com by 31 October 2013. Articles should be formatted according to MLA Guidelines.
