How have inequality and ideas about race shaped the histories of archaeology? These questions have been of increasingly urgent importance as the discipline has started to come to terms with its past—and the pasts that archaeology has helped to create. Yet now, more than ever, these queries should be central to the field. In this unprecedented moment of global action and possibility, the Bulletin of the History of Archaeology calls for contributions that reflect on these questions, aiming to publish them as a form of rapid response to the unfolding situation, and ultimately using them to ask where the histories of archaeology—and perhaps archaeology itself—should go from here. The journal solicits contributions—historically informed reflections and short vignettes—of 1000–1500 words. Given their current importance, we aim to publish these pieces as quickly as possible, bypassing peer-review; article processing charges will also be waived.
To make a contribution, please send a short (50-word) abstract to the journal’s online submission system by 31st July 2020. To upload your abstract, use the system as normal, but instead of uploading an article in the manuscript field, please upload a word file with your abstract. If you require assistance (or to discuss a potential contribution), please contact William Carruthers at email@example.com
