Fellow Historians,


Essays in History (EiH), the annual peer-reviewed journal of the University of Virginia’s Corcoran Department of History, is currently soliciting articles, book reviews, and historiographical essays for its fifty-second issue, to appear in the fall of 2018.


EiH is a journal for emerging scholars that has been staffed and published by graduate students at the Corcoran Department of History since 1954. Each year we publish peer-reviewed articles, as well as, book reviews and historiographical essays in all fields of history.


In recent years, we have published the work of scholars from all across the country, including Berkeley, Brown, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Rice, UNC-Chapel Hill, UPenn, UVa, Yale, as well as from institutions around the world such as Delhi University. 


Our most recent issue can be found here: Volume 51: 2017


The deadline for article and book review submissions is May 2nd, 2018. Article submissions should include a copy of the author’s curriculum vitae and an abstract of roughly one hundred words in length. Authors interested in submitting book reviews and historiographical essays should provide a current curriculum vitae and contact the journal prior to their submission in order to confirm the monograph to be reviewed. Our submission guidelines are available at:




All submissions and any questions can be email to: [log in to unmask].
