Call for Papers - Global Antiquities
Global Antiquities (GA) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal dedicated to promoting academic work at the crossroads of Classics and Global Studies. The journal aims to publish research that engages scholars of ancient and modern worlds in dialogue about globalization and its effects, both historical and contemporary. Poverty, war, xenophobia, nationalism, migration, terrorism, imperialism, racism: these are major issues in global history shaped powerfully by the contexts in which they occur. GA welcomes submissions of research articles, book reviews, review articles, translations, and commentaries by scholars across disciplines seeking to understand and illuminate global issues through time, from antiquity to the present day.
Global Antiquities is edited by an international editorial team, supported by a distinguished and diverse advisory board. Visit https://globalantiquities.pitt.edu/GA/about/editorialTeam for details.
NOW INVITING SUBMISSIONS
Global Antiquities invites submissions from Classicists, Ancient Historians, Archaeologists, and scholars in related fields, whose research is in dialogue with contemporary Globalization Studies. We also welcome papers from post-Classical Historians, Political Scientists, Theorists, and Philosophers, Anthropologists, Sociologists, and other social scientists and humanists whose work on global issues engages with the ancient past.
We view as “global” those features of human societies throughout history that cross real or imagined boundaries (geographic, chronological, cultural) and destabilize the primacy of the “state” or “nation” as the fundamental unit of analysis in world history. These “global” features are sometimes described processually as “flows” or “movements”, at other times statically as “systems” or “structures”. We seek work that challenges historical narratives of separateness rooted in a national imaginary, with narratives of interconnectivity and mobility made possible by globalization. Global Antiquities therefore invites submissions on a broad range of topics including (but not limited to):
- poverty, inequality, enslavement, human rights
- war, peace, terrorism, diplomacy
- state formation and development; interstate networks, commerce, and governance
- ancient and modern identities (esp. the role of antiquity in configuring post-Classical identities)
- perceptions and expressions of difference (e.g. in gender, race, religion, ethnicity, ability, nationality, sexual identity, etc.)
- nationalism, indigeneity, citizenship, xenophobia
- migration, mobility, displacement
- center, border, and periphery
- constructions and propagations of culture (esp. across borders)
- illness and public health (including mental health); disability studies
- imperialisms; colonization; exploration and geography
- climate change, the environment, environmental justice
- organization, structures, and movement of knowledge; technology in society
- social movements and activism
- transnational organizations (including criminal) and movements
- perceptions of and attendance to basic needs and threats thereto (e.g. drought, famine)
In addition, the editorial team also welcomes proposals for edited special issues bringing together cross-disciplinary articles on a single subject. Prospective editors should contact the journal staff for proposal guidelines and further instructions.
