David Lowe is a member of the distinguished Editorial Advisory Board of a brand new journal, Journal of Applied History, published by Brill. The journal’s topic and aims will appeal to many members of the CHRG being a new, interdisciplinary and peer-reviewed scholarly journal concerned with the application of historical knowledge and insights to current matters.
Unlike other journals, the Journal of Applied History offers a platform for articles in which the results of historical research are applied to present-day issues. By connecting historical case studies to contemporary concerns and (or) future possibilities, authors are asked to make an explicit connection between past, present and future.
As such the Journal of Applied History seeks to promote long-term thinking when considering the causes and implications of present affairs and issues. The journal, which is published biannually, seeks to inform scholars and policymakers interested in connecting past and present through publishing relatively short articles of approximately 4,000 words.
Contributions are encouraged from specialists in all branches of the humanities and social sciences who adopt a historical approach: from historians and anthropologists, to political scientists and sociologists, and from experts in the history of antiquity to those working on the very recent past, thus bringing together long-term perspectives and various approaches and methodologies.
