The power of research, internships, and jobs shouldn’t be underestimated, which is why you’ll find that most of our departments offer their own unique experiences. While participating in original research and internships will give you an upper hand when you’re competing in the job market, it will also give you invaluable experience and unforgettable memories.

ACADEMIC JOURNAL

Clio

 

Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History, a double-blind, peer-reviewed international interdisciplinary journal, publishes scholarly essays that explore the connections between history, literature, and the arts.

Humans understand themselves and their cultures, even create themselves and their cultures, through stories. Sometimes we call those stories “history,” and sometimes we call them “literature.” Clio is interested in the interconnectedness of these two disciplines, as well as the philosophical work that supports these kinds of inquiries. We publish researched essays at the intersections of these disciplines—that is, not simple expositions of historical events or uncontextualized “readings” of literary texts, but articles that are interdisciplinary in argument and method. Essays should be accessible to an interdisciplinary scholarly audience.

Clio has been in existence for almost 50 years and is published in both print and electronic form, with
full-text availability through EBSCO academic databases such as Biography Reference Center, History Abstract with Full Text, History Reference Center Plus, and Humanities Source.

Specific Guidelines 

General Submission Guidelines
Essays and review articles should present well-focused arguments of approximately 20–30 pages (5,000–9,000 words, including footnotes). Conference papers or dissertation chapters must be revised to make fully developed, self-sufficient arguments. Clio will not consider any submissions that are currently under consideration at any other journal.

Manuscripts should follow The Chicago Manual of Style, Seventeenth Edition (with footnotes kept to a minimum). List your name and affiliation on a separate cover sheet but include only the essay’s title on the manuscript itself to facilitate blind-reading of submissions. Please include an abstract of 150–200 words that summarizes the key points of your article.

Only electronic essay submissions will be accepted. Please use Word (.docx) format. We also need complete contact information, including preferred email address, and street address. If submitting an article, please send your text as an email attachment to [email protected]. If submitting a book review or review article, please also send a copy of your review to Lachlan Whalen, commissioning editor, at [email protected].

You may expect a decision regarding publication within four months. Copyediting and related queries will be handled via email using MS Word’s track changes and comments functionality. Book reviews are solicited by the book review editors.
