Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies invites essay submissions for Volume Seven on the theme of ‘Minority and Marginalised Experiences’.

Recent scholarship has begun to acknowledge that the focus of Medieval and Early Modern Studies has long been on the experience of people in positions of social privilege. New movements in academia are addressing this imbalance, acknowledging that women, ethnic minorities, and other marginalised groups contributed richly to the fabric of medieval and early modern life. This volume of Ceræ aims to join this shift in focus to the experiences of minority groups, marginalised peoples, and life in non-western territories.

We invite themed submissions related to the following topics

  • Experiences of minority or marginalised groups
  • Writings by minority or marginalised groups
  • Literary depictions of minority or marginalised groups
  • The effacement of minority or marginalised groups
  • Marginalia
  • Experiences on the transition of a border or landscape
  • The law of minority and marginalised groups
  • Minority and marginalised cultures, beliefs, and celebrations
  • Experiences of disability and physical and mental illness

Ceræ invites submissions covering all aspects of studying marginalized groups and experiences.

Full-length articles should be approximately 5000-7000 words. Ceræ also accepts varia of under 3000 words. Ceræ particularly encourages submissions from postgraduate and early career researchers. Further details regarding submission and author guidelines can be found online at:

The deadline for themed submissions will be April 30 2020.

We invite non themed submissions year-round.

We are pleased to award an essay prize of $200 (AUD), which will be awarded to the best article in Volume 7 on the theme of ‘Minority and Marginalised Experiences’
