Call for Papers: Authoritarianism in World History

Marc Gilbert's picture

World History Connected, an 18 year-old affiliate of the World History Association averaging 1.8 million readers annually, is seeking articles for its forthcoming Forum section devoted to “Authoritarianism in World History.” Articles may focus on research or pedagogy. Theoretical and case studies are welcome. The deadline for submissions is June 27, 2023 with publication expected in October 2023.   As always, individual articles on any subject germane to world history may be submitted at any time.  

Those interested in submitting articles for this or any forthcoming issue, should write to the Editor, Marc Jason Gilbert, at, with the subject line “WHC Submission.” Prospective authors of articles should incorporate into their submissions guidelines provided at its website,  or obtained by writing directly to the Editor.  

Between now and then,  the Forum sections of this double-blind peer review e-journal (ISSN 1931-8642) address  “India: Teaching and Research in Time of Pandemic” (current issue, Guest editors, Gary G. Gibbs and Whitney A. M. Leeson);  “Oral History and World History” (Guest editors Tiffany  Trimmer and Julie Weiskopf);  “World History Standards” (Guest Editor, Stephen Jackson); and “The American West in World History” (Guest editor, Vera Parham). Submissions may still be sent within the deadlines of all but the current issue which can be supplied by writing to the Editor.  Again, individual articles not related to Forum sections appear in each issue.

World History Connected invites Guest Editors with an interest in shaping future "Forum” sections, such as those above. Past Guest Editors have included several Presidents of the American Historical Association and the World History Association including the latter's current President, Jonathan Reynolds.  The journal also provides a set of guidelines for prospective Guest Editors. Inquiries should be directed to the Editor. 

Regular readers of the journal may wish to know that it is currently transitioning from the University of Illinois Press, its publisher since 2006, to George Mason University, long-known for its support of world history and global studies.
