Call for Submissions to Special Issues
What is Colonial History?
The editors of French Historical Studies seek contributions for a special issue of the journal that focuses on the history of French colonialism and the writing of that history. France's colonial past has recently begun to attract much more attention from French historians. Yet the earlier marginal status of French colonial history, combined with the convention of training scholars in only one national history, has left the contours of this emerging field ambiguous. What is colonial history, in the French context? Was activity in the colonies critical to developments (political, cultural and other) in France? If so, how to do we reintegrate colonialism into the history of the metropole, without disenfranchising those formerly colonized? Or is all colonial history necessarily transnational history, which French historians must now learn to write? Finally, how can post-colonial, literary and gender theories be used most effectively by historians interested in French colonialism?
Submissions dealing with any aspect of colonialism are welcome, as are all disciplinary or theoretical perspectives compatible with the journal's historical orientation. We are especially interested in articles that examine a particular facet of French colonialism but also reflect upon the author's approach to the topic. Although we expect that most of the published contributions will be based on primary source materials, we also welcome theoretical, methodological and historiographical articles on the relationship between the national and the colonial, and/or the "old" colonial history and the "new." Authors should indicate in a cover letter that they intend the article for the special issue on colonialism; the journal's standard review policy will apply. Manuscripts should follow the normal format be submitted to the editors by March 1, 2002.
