We welcome the submission of articles. We are grateful that our contributors’ essays from earlier issues were gratis. However, from Issue #21, contributors will receive an honorarium of $50.

Possible fields of endeavour include:
1.  Re-evaluation and critiques of official historiography and discourses
2.  Research on marginalized actors and social classes
3.  Engagement with issues of concern, examined through a historical frame

Contributions should be the result of scholarly research, but need not be presented with the full formal conventions of an academic product. In fact, the injunction is that intimidating academic-speak is out. We want to provide room as well for reflective essays, proposals and tentative findings for new areas of research.

The referencing of facts and quotes should be limited to the necessary. We accept either Harvard-style referencing (author-year-page bracketed in text, with list of references at the end of the article) or end-note citations, but we prefer minimal notes.

We do not publish articles by anonymous and pseudonymous authors. Please include a short biographical statement of yourself of about 1-4 sentences.

Contributors have copyright on their materials, and have the right to use them in other forms or publication. However, we appreciate that authors keep us informed of other publication sites, as we would like to cross-reference them. Each author is solely responsible for the views expressed in their contribution, which do not reflect the position of either of s/pores, nor the institution to which she or he is affiliated.
