CALL FOR PAPERS: NZJPH6: Feminism and Public History: DUE 1 JULY 2018
The New Zealand Journal of Public History is soliciting articles, short critiques, commentaries, student summaries and ‘flash histories’ for NZJPH6: Feminism and Public History.
Reflecting the recent surge in interest in feminist history and art history, NZJPH6 is dedicated to the theme of feminism and public history. We welcome contributions that consider feminist approaches to public history, document feminist curation of exhibitions, consider responses to the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage, or that critique the heritage sector and its work practices from the perspectives of women or gender, for example.
We also invite postgraduate students who have recently completed a thesis within the field of public history/museum studies (on any topic) to submit a summary signalling the significance of their findings to the field of public history, for publication in the journal. Postgraduate summaries should be 1000 words.
Ways to contribute to NZJPH6:
Academic article (6000 words/peer reviewed)
Academic critique (2000 words/peer reviewed)
