Une nouvelle revue : Journal of Transcultural Medieval Studies

 

The last decades have seen considerable changes with regard to our globalizing world which challenge academic education and scholarly research in various disciplines. Among these scholarly challenges, interreligious encounters, transcultural exchanges and entangled histories are most prominent.
The new Journal of Transcultural Medieval Studies will provide a forum for scholarship of pre-modern times. It publishes comparative studies, which systematically reflect the entanglement and the interconnection of European, African, Asian and American cultures. The Journal will pursue an interdisciplinary approach. It also intends to foster methodological reflections on transculturality in the broad sense.
Each issue of the Journal of Transcultural Medieval Studies will comprise three sections: 1) Articles, either miscellaneous or in thematic panels, 2) Reviews of recent publications in the field, committed to detailed and constructive criticism, 3) News, offering an up-to-date forum for the most recent activities in transcultural research (institutions, projects, networks, conferences, workshops).
The print version of the Journal of Transcultural Medieval Studies is published twice a year (September and December). Submissions for the issues should be handed in to the Editorial Team no later than December, 31st of the preceding year. Papers are selected in a double-blind peer review process and accepted for publication by an international Advisory Board.
