Write for Us . . .
The Cambridge Humanities Review welcomes reviews of academic monographs, edited collections, works of fiction or poetry, and exhibitions. (And we also welcome original essays on any topic.)
Any publications reviewed should fall within the domain of the humanities, but texts which bridge the sciences, e.g. History of Science, are acceptable too.
Any books reviewed ought to have been released in the last couple of years, and contributors should take into account the prominence and both the scholarly and general interest of the publication in question.
Contributors may be invited to present at one of our various speaker events throughout the year, or our annual Literary Festival. Review copies can usually be provided, upon request.
The Cambridge Humanities Review is open to submissions from both students and academics, and indeed writers who are neither. We host a number of upcoming writers alongside well-known voices, and are keen to encourage the best new/emerging critics.
(We'd like to stress that while the Review is based in Oxford and Cambridge Universities, it's an entirely independent arts journal, and welcomes writers from anywhere.)
See below for a list of suggested titles. If you want to pitch a review or essay, in most cases contact the Editor, Daniel Matore, at email@example.com. Queries that particularly relate to art, design or architecture, however, should first be directed to the Deputy Editor, Natalie Ferris (firstname.lastname@example.org), and those that relate to literature, literary criticism or proposed literary essays to the Senior Editor, Cal Revely-Calder (email@example.com).
All submissions should be up to 5000 words.
(Submissions must be in English; reviews of foreign-language works will require accompanying English translations. ) Please consult the CHR's Style Guide (link below) for guidelines on house style.
Every year, our three strictly applied deadlines for submission are:
Michaelmas Term Issue (Autumn) - 20th September
Lent Term Issue (Spring) - 7th January
Easter Term Issue (Summer) - 1st April
