South, West and Wales DTP's new postgraduate journal: Question
We are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new, interdisciplinary and cross-institutional postgraduate journal called Question. If you would like a free copy, please contact Gemma for details of where to send a stamped addressed envelope.

About Question:
Question is a new, interdisciplinary, cross-institutional journal founded by the South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership. The aim is to encourage conversations across academic disciplines, sharing knowledge beyond traditional subject fields and, hopefully, gaining new insights as a result. The journal is fully dedicated to academic rigour, and will honour a ‘right to reply’ and double blind peer-review system. However, Question also operates on the maxim of ‘no prior knowledge’. Each piece will be presented in a format accessible to non-specialist audiences, allowing postgraduates (and hopefully lay audiences) to engage with topics outside of their fields and challenge, debate and contribute to the authors’ ideasSeeking Hosts for the Podcast New Books in British Studies



New Books in British Studies is currently seeking hosts interested in conducting interviews with authors of new books on Britain and its empire. Hosting the channel is a good way to bring the work of scholars of Britain and its empire to the attention of large audiences. Interested parties should write Marshall Poe.




Call for Articles - Antisemitism in Britain and Ireland
Antisemitism Studies welcomes the submission of manuscripts that contribute to the scholarly study of antisemitism. To see our upcoming second issue, click here.
We will consider articles on specific antisemitic episodes and their historical significance and impact on society, as well as more thematic and theoretical studies of the phenomenon. Authors may work from any disciplinary perspective, address any cultural, national, or religious context, and study any period of history, including the present. At this time, we are particularly interested in articles that address antisemitism in Britain and in Ireland.

Antisemitism Studies adheres to a double–blind peer review process in which the identities of the author and reviewers remain confidential. Please note that the formal evaluation process on all submissions takes anywhere between one and three months, and the period between acceptance of an article and its publication is between six months and one year. 
Please visit our website for further information.
Any questions about the journal or its submissions process may be directed to the editor.

Masque Dance and Music at the Jacobean Court
Stonyhurst College, Clitheroe, Lancashire, BB7 9PZ
5th to 12th August, 2018
This is a very special opportunity to enjoy and understand how a Jacobean masque functions, through a recreation of The Lords’ Masque, written by Thomas Campion for the nuptials of Elizabeth, Princess of England and First Lady of Scotland, the daughter of James I, on 14th February, 1613.  
The team of tutors has experience and expertise in the recreation of Stuart masques (the English ballet de cour), bringing to life the texts with the dance and music that were the heart of a masque. During the first two days, all students will have the chance to explore elements of a Jacobean masque. Rehearsals specifically for The Lords’ Masque will take place during the final four days, culminating in the performance on Saturday night. A short course option from Sunday to Wednesday morning is available, offering an excellent grounding in dance or music, and an introduction to masque elements, concluding with a festive Jacobean revel on Tuesday evening.  
Full course: £575 Short course: £250
More information and booking forms are available on the HDS website . You are welcome to contact the course administrator, Lynne Spicer, to discuss your needs (tel. 01664 822404 or email.

Please note that reviews, CFPs, news,etc. include only those that explicitly concern historical scholarship on Britain.  So, there are no reviews here of books on Spanish history. Also there are no notices of conferences on the Holocaust [even those being held in the U.K.]  Obviously, non-British history topics will be relevant and of interest to historians of Britain but it falls outside the purview of this website.
