Coming Soon: A New Journal for 18th-Century Art

Posted in journal articles by Editor on September 14, 2015


We are delighted to announce the launch of Journal18—a new digital publication entirely dedicated to eighteenth-century art and material culture.

Journal18 is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal devoted to art and culture of the long eighteenth century from around the globe. Inspired by the rich and exciting state of the field of eighteenth-century art history, Journal18 has been founded as a scholarly forum to support and extend that richness. Taking form as a digital publication, Journal18 embraces the accessibility and flexibility of its format, seeking the widest possible engagement with the latest research in the field.

Journal18 will be the first journal dedicated to the field of eighteenth-century art history, and one of the few online and fully open access journals for the discipline of art history more broadly. Appearing twice a year, Journal18 will publish thematic issues of articles investigating all aspects of eighteenth-century visual and material culture. Throughout the year, Journal18 will also offer a forum for intellectual exchange in the Notes & Queries section: a space for short notes, reviews, archival discoveries, or scholarly musings.

Journal18 will launch in Spring 2016 with Issue #1—Multilayered. This inaugural issue of Journal18 will explore the multilayered nature of eighteenth-century art. Contributions will focus on artworks that bear traces of multiple hands as a result of workshop production, cross-cultural exchange, re-use, restoration, vandalism, or other factors.

We are currently accepting submissions for Notes & Queries, but we are no longer accepting submissions for Issue #1—Multilayered. For all inquiries including proposals for contributions to Notes & Queries please contact the editors at: editor@journal18.org. Keep up to date with Journal18 by following us on Twitter @Journal18  and Facebook.
