Ethnohistory Journal


Ethnohistory reflects the wide range of current scholarship that is inspired by anthropological and historical approaches to the human conditions.  Of particular interest are those analyses and interpretations that seek to make evident the experience, organization and identities of indigenous, disasporic and minority peoples that otherwise elude the histories and anthropologies of nations, states and colonial empires.  In the past the journal has published work from the disciplines of geography, literature, sociology and archaeology, as well as anthropology and history, and such submissions are encouraged.  The defining characteristic of editorial policy is an openness to the theoretical and cross-cultural discussion of ethnohistorical materials, and a recognition of the wide range of academic disciplines that may have material of interest and relevance to the readers of Ethnohistory.

The journal publishes peer-reviewed articles, book reviews, and review essays.  We welcome the submission of sets of papers on a linked theme, which would constitute a forum within a regular journal issue.  Special Issues, under a guest editor, that present the very best of emergent ethnohistorical scholarships, are solicited by the editors.  Recent special issues have included volumes on graphic pluralism, the Maya, and sexual identities in colonial Mesoamerica.  Special issues are selected primarily from participants in the Editors’ Session at the annual meeting of the ASE.  Special issues are generally included in the Duke University Press book catalogue.
