Appel à contribution : Viator, Medieval and Renaissance Studies
Viator offers a space for renewed attention to the global long Middle Ages, viewed broadly as the period from late antiquity into early modernity, while continuing its long-standing tradition of publishing articles of distinction in the established fields of Medieval and Renaissance Studies. In keeping with its title, ‘traveler,’ the journal gives special consideration to articles that cross frontiers, focusing on meetings between cultures, pursuing an idea through the centuries, or employing methods of different disciplines simultaneously, while remaining accessible to the non-specialist reader. We particularly welcome articles that look beyond Western Eurasia and North Africa and consider the history, literature, art, and thought of the Medieval and Renaissance periods from a global perspective.
With a revised and forward-looking mission statement, we are currently seeking articles of 8,000 – 13,000 words. Viator is also interested in featuring edited clusters of shorter articles (2000–3,500 words each). We eagerly look forward to publishing our first cluster, « Looking Ahead: Global Encounters in the North Atlantic, ca. 350–1300,” edited by Nahir Otaño Gracia, Nicole Lopez-Jantzen, and Erica Weaver and featuring urgent interventions by early-career scholars.
To submit an article to Viator or to propose a cluster, please contact Allison McCann. Submissions guidelines can be found here.
