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.

Any questions about the journal or its submissions process may be directed to the editor.

AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Project on British-Caribbean History at the British Library
The British Library seeks applications from potential academic partners for a new AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Project on British-Caribbean History. The application deadline is 25 November 2016. AHRC CDPs provide funding for PhD research drawing on our collections, resources and expertise that is co-supervised by the Library and a selected academic partner at a UK university or Higher Education Institute (HEI).

In his seminal work Conscripts of Modernity (2004) David Scott argues, “the conceptual problem of political presents and [...] how reconstructed pasts and anticipated futures are thought out in relation to them” is the ultimate critical question for scholars of the Caribbean in the post-colonial era. Taking this fundamental problematic as its theoretical point of departure, this project focuses on the grassroots re-construction of pasts – and futures – in post-WWII/post-Windrush Britain.

Drawing on newspapers, periodicals, poetry, drama, interviews, music, manuscripts and photography the project will analyse the cultural forms that evolved and the histories they articulated – and the futures they longed for – within the British Caribbean community in the last half of the 20th century. 

For more information on the project and how to apply please click here.

Unwilling to make any kind of implied political claim of English hegemony over Ireland (Northern or otherwise), I have elected only to provide links to the major journals rather than TOCs.

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.
