postmedieval publishes theoretically driven scholarship on premodernity and its ongoing reverberations. Contributions are characterized by conceptual adventure, stylistic experiment, political urgency, or surprising encounter. The editors are committed to expanding the fields of knowledge and geography represented in the journal, by showcasing scholarship that reaches across disciplines, language traditions, locales, modes of inquiry, and levels of access. Our aim is to facilitate collaborative, ethical, and experimental engagements with the medieval – with its archives and art, its thought and practices, its traces and its enduring possibilities.
In general, postmedieval is published four times a year. Some of these are themed, guest-edited issues; others are open-topic. The journal’s editors will consider submissions of individual essays as well as proposals for themed issues. If accepted, individual essays will be published as Online First publications, appearing first as independent articles on the journal website and later in one of the print issues. We will also entertain small, themed clusters of essays to be included in open issues as well as commissioned book-review essays.
