New Editor for Journal of World History

Founded by Jerry Bentley and now in its 30th year, The Journal of World History publishes research into historical questions across any time period requiring the investigation of evidence on a global, comparative, cross-cultural, or transnational scale. It is devoted to the study of phenomena that transcend the boundaries of single states, regions, or cultures, such as large-scale population movements, long-distance trade, cross-cultural technology transfers, and the global spread of ideas. It engages with the historiographical, theoretical, and methodological approaches to world history, conceived broadly. Along with individual articles based on original research, JWH publishes state of the field pieces, thematic special issues, considerations of pedagogy, topical special forums, and book reviews.

The Journal of World History is published by the University of Hawai‘i Press, and manuscripts should be submitted through the journal’s website: https://uhpress.hawaii.edu/product/jwh/. The book review office, under the direction of JWH’s editor Matthew Romaniello, is at Weber State University. Books appropriate for JWH to review should be sent to:

Department of History

The World History Bulletin Needs You!

The World History Bulletin is the semiannual, fully peer-reviewed publication of the World History Association that is devoted to raising questions, fostering debates, developing pedagogy, and evolving the field of world history. We welcome short-form essays (roughly 1,500–3,000 words in length) on all aspects of world historical scholarship including pedagogy, research, and theory. Topics may include any period or geographic focus in history. Reviews of books and other scholarly works, or original syllabi are welcome, as well.
