Cultural History

Cultural History is the only journal in the world that takes cultural history in general as its chief concern, bringing contemporary cultural theories and methodologies to bear on the study of the past, with a broad historical and geographical remit. Its main focus is on the ways in which people in the past orientated themselves as individuals and groups towards others. The journal also explores the ways in which museums and the heritage industry engage with current debates in cultural history.

About this Journal

The intellectual shifts of recent decades have moved ‘culture’ to the forefront of academic attention while expanding the practice of ‘history’ beyond the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Cultural History, the peer-reviewed journal of the International Society for Cultural History (ISCH), engages fully with these developments.

The only journal in the world that takes cultural history in general as its chief concern, Cultural History welcomes high-quality submissions from any discipline that brings contemporary cultural theories and methodologies to bear on the study of the past, regardless of historical or geographical focus. The journal also invites articles that reflect on the ways in which more practical environments such as museums and the heritage industry engage with current debates in cultural history.
