Call for Proposals: BJHS Themes 4 (2019)

(please circulate)

 

Dear colleagues,

 

We are calling for proposals for Issue 4 (2019) of BJHS Themes, the annual open-access journal that is a companion to the British Journal for the History of Science. Like the BJHS, BJHS Themes is published by Cambridge University Press on behalf of the BSHS.

 

Previous volumes have included 'Science of giants: India and China in the 20th Century' (issue 1, 2016, guest editors Jahnavi Phalkey and Tong Lam) and 'Animal agents' (issue 2, 2017, guest editor Amanda Rees).
