CfP: Journal for the History of Knowledge

new international review

We invite contributions to the Journal for the History of Knowledgewhich will be launched early 2020.

Scope

JHoKis devoted to the history of knowledge in its broadest sense. This includes the study of indigenous, artisanal, and other types of knowledge, often seen as ‘weaker’ than science, as well as the history of academic knowledge developed in the humanities and social sciences. Special attention is devoted to interactions and processes of demarcation of science and knowledge. Contributions can deal with the history of concepts of knowledge, the study of practices of knowledge, and institutions and sites of knowledge production and legitimation (including universities). Contributions which highlight the relevance of the history of knowledge to current policy concerns (for example, by historicizing and problematizing concepts such as the knowledge society) are particularly welcome.

The journal is explicitly global in scope offering a platform for publications that concern non-western cases, that compare western and non-western knowledge practices or that show the connections between concepts and practices of knowledge in different parts of the globe. Its time-spanis antiquity to the present.
