Call for Papers: General Issue
SUBMISSION DEADLINE for Vol. 8, no. 1: 15 August 2012

Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies is a refereed, peer-reviewed, and born-digital journal devoted to the culture, literature, history, and society of the medieval past. Published semiannually, the journal collects exceptional examples of work by graduate students on any theme, discipline, subject, and period of medieval studies. We also welcome book reviews of monographs published or re-released in the past five years that are of interest to medievalists.

Our upcoming issue will be published in the autumn of 2012, and we are now accepting submissions on any topic of medieval studies. Possible topics may be drawn from any discipline: history, art history, archaeology, literature, linguistics, music, theology, etc. Work from every interpretive angle is encouraged – memory, gender, historiography, medievalism, consilience, etc. Most importantly, we seek engaging, original work that contributes to our collective understanding of the medieval era.

Contributions should be in English and roughly 6,000 - 12,000 words, including all documentation and citational apparatus; book reviews are typically between 500-1,000 words but cannot exceed 2,000. All notes must be endnotes, and a bibliography must be included; submission guidelines can be found on our website: www.hortulus-journal.com. Contributions may be submitted to hortulus@hortulus-journal.com and are due August 15, 2012. Queries about submissions or the journal more generally can also be sent to this address.
