Fort Ticonderoga has announced they are seeking submissions for the 2019 issue of The Bulletin of the Fort Ticonderoga Museum.
Published since 1927, the Bulletin has been a resource for historians, scholars, and the public for over 90 years, publishing a wide range of articles on North American military history. After a 15-year hiatus, The Bulletin returned to print in 2016 as an illustrated, annual publication and, with the 2019 issue, will become a peer-reviewed journal.
The Bulletin seeks proposals for new research on military history and culture during the long 18th century (roughly 1609-1815). The editors seek contributions that explore the complexities of waging and sustaining war in the early modern period. They are encouraging articles on the military events of northeastern North America, and are interested in a range of topics and perspectives that can connect or contextualize North American military operations and institutions with broader trends and themes.
Continuing the mandate of the original Bulletin the editors welcome contributions from a range of disciplines such as history, art history, material culture, archeology, anthropology, and public history.
Articles may include or engage:
- Material culture and object studies
- Biographical analysis
- Social and cultural histories of early modern warfare
- Annotated transcriptions/translations of primary sources
- Archaeological approaches and case-studies
- International and Indigenous Perspectives
Submissions may range from 4,000-8,000 words. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to publish any copyrighted material, and for bearing the costs of obtaining or reproducing illustrations. Accepted authors will have free access to illustrations from Fort Ticonderoga’s collections. Submissions receive peer-review after an initial screening and authors will be informed of acceptance by October 1, 2018 with an anticipated publication date of May 1, 2019.
