Call for Papers

After the successful publication of our first journal, History in Politics is making our second call for papers for the History in Politics Journal (Summer 2021)! If you want to see your work published in a physical journal and on our website, this is the perfect opportunity.

Our second journal will centre around Boundaries. Our editorial team is looking for essays covering a range of topics, times, and places, all through the paradigm of history in politics.

“The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space. We are in the epoch of simultaneity: we are in the epoch of juxtaposition, the epoch of the near and far, of the side-by-side, of the dispersed.” – Michel Foucault

The call for papers is open to any Durham student, not just History or Politics students! We welcome both broad and specific interpretations of the theme and you can repurpose essays you have already written.

Members will be prioritised so be sure to join us via the SU’s website (it’s free!). 

To submit, use the submission box on this website by 30th April at 5pm. When submitting please include your name and essay title with *Journal Submission* at the start. If you want to discuss your title or ideas, our editorial team can be contacted through the submissions box.

The guidelines and style guide for submissions can be found here.

If you want to see your work published in a physical journal and on our website, this is the perfect opportunity.

If you have any questions please contact any member of the editorial team via. this website or email.

We can’t wait to read your essays!
