The editors of the Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies and Routledge are delighted to offer a $500 prize for the most outstanding article published in the journal each year.
All articles published in JMIS will automatically be considered for the Best Article Prize, and all submissions received during each calendar year will be considered for publication in the following year.
Call for Papers
The Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies is an interdisciplinary journal for innovative scholarship on the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic cultures of the Iberian Peninsula from the fifth to the sixteenth centuries. JMIS encompasses archaeology, art and architecture, music, philosophy and religious studies, as well as history, codicology, manuscript studies and the multiple Arabic, Latin, Romance, and Hebrew linguistic and literary traditions of Iberia. Essays that engage with multiple disciplinary perspectives, non-traditional submissions (including multimedia and theoretically attuned work), and comparative articles addressing the significance for medieval Iberian studies of broader developments in medieval European, colonial Latin American, Peninsular or North African studies —and vice-versa — are strongly encouraged. JMIS, which is supported in part by the Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University and by Hofstra University, will be published twice a year, with occasional thematic clusters.
Submissions for consideration must be prepared in Chicago ‘humanities’ style, and should not exceed 10,000 words; shorter pieces, and non-traditional submissions, are welcomed. Submissions in English are preferred; however, submissions in other languages may be accepted at the discretion of the editors. For the full instructions for authors, click here.
