Call for Submissions: Special issue of the World History Bulletin on law in history

The World History Bulletin is accepting submissions for the Spring 2013 issue focusing on law in world history, under the guest editorship of Dan Margolies (Virginia Wesleyan College) and H. Robert Baker (Georgia State University). Authors may consider all aspects of historical scholarship, including research, pedagogy, or theory. Topics which particularly engage issues of sovereignty, either spatially constructed or theoretically defined, are particularly welcomed. Course syllabi with commentary on teaching law in world history are especially desirable. Interested authors should contact Robert Baker at

Authors should keep in mind that the World History Bulletin’s audience is composed of specialists in a diverse range of historical fields and periods, in addition to K-12 teachers. Thus, articles should be made as clear and accessible as possible for this diverse readership. The World History Bulletin publishes articles of varying lengths; though submissions between 500 and 5,000 words will be considered, we are especially interested in contributions of 1,500-3,500 words. The deadline for submissions in October 30, 2012.
