The ANU Historical Journal II (ANUHJ II) is a peer-reviewed academic history journal of The Australian National University and is edited by undergraduate and postgraduate history students. As a revival of the ANU Historical Journal, which was published between 1964 and 1987, it maintains a special interest in publishing the research of students and recent graduates across Australia. It publishes articles that engage with historical topics from a range of perspectives and geographies. To date, it has published articles that contribute to women’s history, Australian history, Indigenous histories, contemporary history, and more.
Spheres of Interaction: A handbook of Global Oceanic Encounters
Spheres of Interaction will be a major edited collection of interdisciplinary Encounter histories, to be published by Palgrave McMillan in 2024, and edited by the Global Encounters Monash team. They seek contributions from scholars and cultural practitioners across the disciplines of history, archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, art theory, performance, botany, zoology and science. The common, uniting theme of this volume will be encounters of human and non-human actors on the beaches, bays and estuaries where cultures and often species meet. They invite expressions of interest which focus on oceans (The Pacific, Indian or Atlantic) or the littoral (coasts, bays and estuaries). They are interested in maritime interaction spheres in Southeast Asia, African nations, the Middle East, and the Americas, during the last millenia.
