Call for Papers: Issue 1

JBI, the new peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal of the Hub for the Study of British Identities, invites submissions on the theme of British identities.

Published online twice per year, JBI draws together academics and the public, providing an open-access forum for research on representations of British identities and the study of identities within the British Isles, the ‘Atlantic archipelago’, and the broader British world.

JBI aims to encourage public conversations about Britishness and we welcome contributions from researchers of all backgrounds, including submissions from the public outwith academia, and from early career academics and students.

The journal consists of traditional academic articles, opinion pieces, reviews, interviews, ‘Notes and Queries’, photographic and video essays and other critical and creative responses to British identities. Scholarly articles should be 6,000-8,000 words in length; for all other items — reviews, opinion pieces, interviews, videos — please submit an abstract of c. 250 words.

The deadline for submissions is 1 April 2016 and should be sent to the editor, Dr Jim MacPherson, Programme Leader MLitt British Studies, The Centre for History, University of the Highlands and Islands, Burghfield House, Dornoch IV25 3HN and at
