Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies welcomes submissions for the Spring/Summer 2019 open issue (no theme). Submissions due: May 1, 2019.

Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies is a refereed, peer-reviewed, and born-digital journal devoted to the culture, literature, history, and society of the medieval past. Published semi-annually, the journal collects exceptional examples of work by graduate students on a number of themes, disciplines, subjects, and periods of medieval studies. We also welcome book reviews of monographs published or re-released in the past five years that are of interest to medievalists. For the spring issue we are highly interested in reviews of books that fall under any topic related to medieval studies.

We encourage the submission of articles that take a strongly theoretical and/or interdisciplinary approach, and that examine new and previously unconsidered aspects of these subjects within medieval studies. Articles are welcome from any discipline. Most importantly, we seek engaging, original work that contributes to our collective understanding of the medieval era.

Articles should be in English and roughly 6,000–10,000 words; book reviews should be between 800–2000 words. Please contact reviews@hortulus-journal.com for more information on submitting a book review. All submission guidelines can be found here.

Send articles to hortulus@hortulus-journal.com by May 1, 2019. If you are interested in submitting a paper but feel you would need additional time, please send a query email and details about an expected time-scale for your submission. Queries about submissions or the journal more generally can also be sent to this address.
