Submissions Due: 31 March 2012
Amphora is a new publication for research in Ancient World Studies by Australian and Aotearoa/New Zealand postgraduate and early career researchers. As a regular issue of the Melbourne Historical Journal (MHJ), Amphora is a peer-reviewed journal that is open to new approaches and aims to present original research to a wide and responsive readership.
To celebrate the vibrancy and continued influence of the ancient world upon historical and contemporary thought, the 2012 issue of Amphora will focus on the theme of ‘reception’. The editorial collective will explore how the ancient world has been appropriated, re-contextualised and re-created through literature, theatre, archaeology, architecture, film, art, philosophy and politics; what are the implications of reception studies; and how does this further our understanding of both ancient and modern worlds? While we encourage articles on any topic relating to ancient world studies to be submitted to Amphora, we are also interested in submissions that are particularly relevant to our current theme.
Journal articles should be between 5000-8000 words and constitute an original piece of research. All articles submitted will undergo the review process according to the standard prescribed by the Department of Education, Science and Training HERDC. Manuscripts should not be under review or scheduled for publication by any other journal, and should be substantially different from other published work. The collective asks that all manuscripts conform to the MHJ style guide, which can be found on the MHJ website at: http://www.history.unimelb.edu.au/mhj/Submissions.html
