        From: Ilja Nieuwland 
        Subject: CFA: Journal for the History of Knowledge, new international review

We invite contributions to the /Journal for the History of
Knowledge,/ which will be launched at the beginning of 2020.


The /Journal for the History of Knowledge/ is an open access,
peer-reviewed journal devoted to the history of knowledge in its
broadest sense. This includes the study of science, but also
of indigenous, artisanal, and other types of knowledge as well as the
history of knowledge developed in the humanities and social sciences.
Special attention is paid to interactions and processes of demarcation
between science and other forms of knowledge.

Contributions may deal with the history of concepts of knowledge, the
study of knowledge making practices and institutions and sites of
knowledge production, adjudication, and
legitimation (including universities). Contributions which highlight the
relevance of the history of knowledge to current policy concerns (for
example, by historicizing and problematizing concepts such as
the “knowledge society”) are particularly welcome.

/JHoK/ is affiliated with Gewina, the Belgian-Dutch Society for History
of Science and Universities. It is supported by the Descartes Centre for
the History and Philosophy of the Sciences and the
Humanities, Huygens Institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts
and Sciences, the Vossius Centre for the History of Humanities and
Sciences, and the Stevin Centre for History of Science and Humanities.

The journal is explicitly global in scope. It offers a platform for
publications that concern western and non-western cases, that compare
western and non-western knowledge making practices or that show the
connections between concepts and practices of knowledge in different
parts of the globe.

Its time-span is antiquity to the present.


The Journal for the History of Knowledge is:

   * directed at international authors and readers
   * fully Open Access without author fees
   * double-blind peer-reviewed


JHoK appears both in thematic issues and as issues of separate articles.
Regular contributions should be 8000 to 10000 words, including footnotes.
