History of the Present

Named 2012's "Best New Journal" by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals

History of the Present is a journal devoted to history as a critical endeavor. Its aim is twofold: to create a space in which scholars can reflect on the role history plays in establishing categories of contemporary debate by making them appear inevitable, natural or culturally necessary; and to publish work that calls into question certainties about the relationship between past and present that are taken for granted by the majority of practicing historians.

The editors want to encourage the critical examination of both history’s influence on politics and the politics of the discipline of history itself. History of the Present thus will not publish philosophical treatises on History or intellectual histories tracing developments in the writings of prominent historians. The editors leave that to the pages of History and Theory and Rethinking History. The journal’s object, instead, is to showcase articles that exemplify the practice of what might be called theorized empirical history.  It is in the actual writing of history, based on archival evidence, that our contributors will offer readers an alternative to approaches that predominate in existing journals. A good number of established and new scholars in the United States and abroad are doing exciting and important archivally based historical writing of this sort. No history journal currently published, however, has devoted itself specifically to fostering this work and providing a dedicated forum for it.
