The 2020 volume of the Central Europe Yearbook is now available on the journal’s website. The volume features a forum on Empress Maria Theresa (with an article, interview, and book review) and thematic sections on alchemy in the Holy Roman Empire and sexuality in Central Europe (each containing an article and interview). The issue also includes a digital project on Emperor Maximilian I and articles on a range of topics, from pietism in Prussia to dueling and masculinity to debates about Israeli sovereignty over Jewish cultural productions in Central Europe.
The Yearbook is a venue for undergraduates working on Central European topics to publish their scholarship and work in tandem with professors, independent scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates from various institutions across the country and internationally. The journal is open access, and its online platform provides an outlet for a wide array of scholarly projects. In addition to traditional forms of scholarship, the journal is particularly interested in the development of the digital humanities in the study of the region. Submissions can include academic articles, GIS maps, interactive resources, games, VLOGs, or any other compelling union of technology and research.
The editors are currently seeking submissions for the next volume. Please spread the word among students and encourage them to submit projects and proposals to the journal.
