University of Chicago Press is launching a new journal called Critical Historical Studies. Sponsored by the Chicago Center for Contemporary Theory and edited by Manu Goswami, Moishe Postone, Andrew Sartori, and William H. Sewell, Jr., the journal is actively seeking submissions.
Critical Historical Studies is a new interdisciplinary journal devoted to historical reflections on politics, culture, economy, and social life. CHS features research on the implications of socioeconomic transformations for cultural, political, and social change. In the broad tradition of Critical Theory, CHS will explore the complex connections between cultural form and socioeconomic context and promote a reflexive awareness of the researcher’s own position in the history of global capitalist society.
