Since its foundation in 1986, the Mediterranean Historical Review has pioneered the steadily growing field of international scholarship focusing on the Mediterranean as a vast and complex hub of human interaction and relations, both geographically and historically. The journal seeks contributions on topics that transcend any particular locale or conventional periodization, and which explore the intricate mesh of contacts, relations, and influences within the Mediterranean context.
Chronologically, MHR often aims to integrate various problems in the ancient, medieval, early modern and contemporary history of the Mediterranean basin. Our disciplinary and topical horizons are historically oriented, covering a broad spectrum that ranges from economics to intellectual and inter-religious exchanges, slavery, navigation, early shipping insurance, literature and music, and even climate. The journal occasionally publishes documents of special interest, accompanied by a commentary.
A ‘Book Review Section’ and a rubric of ‘Publications Received’ provide a window on the state of the art in the field of Mediterranean history from antiquity to modern times in all disciplines that investigate the Mediterranean past. Articles submitted for publication, which should not exceed 10,000 words, are subject to peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing by at least two outside referees. We are also happy to discuss cogent proposals for special issues and forums.
