CFP - Ars Orientalis Call for Submissions

Nancy Micklewright Discussion

Ars Orientalis, a peer-reviewed annual journal published jointly by the Freer and Sackler galleries of the Smithsonian and the History of Art department of the University of Michigan, is seeking article proposals for the 2017 volume to be devoted to new research on dress, both historical and contemporary, in the Middle East and Asia.

Submissions should include a 250 word abstract of the article, including a description and a few samples of the visual material to be included, and an author cv. Articles would be due in March, 2016, with final acceptance subject to peer review.

Ars Orientalis now appears in both a print and digital version, with black and white illustrations in print and color online. The digital volume also allows the incorporation of other media, such as video and sound.  Articles for the journal typically range in length from 5000 to 9000 words, with no limit on the number of illustrations.

For more information about the journal please see the journal’s website:  

Article proposals are due August 1, with full articles invited in September.  For more information or questions please contact AO editor-in-chief Nancy Micklewright,
