Une nouvelle revue en histoire culturelle


Philippe Poirrier  transmet

Une nouvelle revue qui semble bien relever de l'histoire culturelle, au sens large.

International Journal for History, Culture and Modernity (HCM)
The International Journal for History, Culture and Modernity (HCM) is a new peer-reviewed open access journal that offers a forum for interdisciplinary scholarship in the domain of the humanities. The aim of the journal is to stimulate research and a lively academic exchange in the field of the cultural history of modernity worldwide. HCM is published by Amsterdam University Press. The first issue of HCM will be published in 2013. The journal conceives ‘modernity’ as a concept, as a problem, and as a period. The concept is rooted historically in the Enlightenment and its alter ego Romanticism, and thus involves, on the most abstract level, contested concepts like universalism, cosmopolitanism, authenticity, progress, individuality, equality, reason, identity, aesthetics and religion. Modernity as a topical problem entails a critical discussion of its origins, trajectory, variations and perceived decline, from a global perspective. As a period, modernity essentially but not inevitably covers the years between 1750 and the present. Modernity is the world in which we live and one we have to cope with; at the same time, it is a contested concept and a serious practical effort. This means that the concepts and theories that deal with modernity are not free floating intellectual artefacts: they confront real situations and actual dilemmas. The International Journal for History, Culture and Modernity (HCM) will consider scholarly contributions that relate topics in cultural history to the wider context of modernity. The journal welcomes new and critical historical approaches, especially those contributing to present-day debates and facilitating a global perspective. HCM invites authors to submit their manuscripts before 1 September 2012. These articles will be considered for the first 2013 issue. However, the journal also welcomes suggestions for articles and manuscripts after this date.
