The New Netherland Institute is pleased to partner with Cornell University Press on a special issue of New York History in 2021. The issue's theme will be race and slavery in North America's Dutch communities. Submissions are due by 12/01/20 and should be sent to Please see the submission guidelines below.

Since 1932, New York History has served as the foremost scholarly journal on the state's past. Now under the leadership of the Cornell University Press and the staff from the New York State Museum, the journal seeks to unify the diverse field of New York State history and meet the needs of a growing historical community that includes scholars, public historians, museum professionals, local government historians, and those seeking an in-depth look at the Empire State's history.

Submitted articles should address, in an original fashion, some aspect of race and slavery in North America's Dutch communities. This includes not only seventeenth-century New Netherland, but its legacy of families spread through the Mid-Atlantic Region and elsewhere. Articles must have some new, previously unexploited material to offer or will present new insights or new interpretations. Suggested length is 20–30 double-spaced pages (or between 6,000 and 9,000 words), including footnotes. All submitted articles must include a 100-word abstract summarizing the article and providing keywords (no more than 10). Authors must submit articles electronically, with all text in Word and all tables, figures, and images in formats supported by Microsoft Windows. Provision of images in proper resolution (no less than 300 dpi at 5” x 7”), securing requisite permissions, and the payment of any fees associated with images for articles are all the responsibility of the author. New York History employs, with some modification, footnote forms suggested in the Chicago Manual of Style.
