Description：Ethnohistory reflects the wide range of current scholarship inspired by anthropological and historical approaches to the human condition around the world, but with a particular emphasis on the Americas. Of particular interest are those analyses and interpretations that seek to make evident the experiences, organizations, and identities of indigenous, diasporic, and minority peoples that otherwise elude the histories and anthropologies of nations, states, and colonial empires. The journal welcomes a theoretical and cross-cultural discussion of ethnohistorical materials and publishes work from the disciplines of art history, geography, literature, archaeology, anthropology, and history, among others.
The journal publishes peer-reviewed articles, book reviews, and review essays. We welcome the submission of sets of papers on a linked theme, which would constitute a forum within a regular journal issue. Special Issues, under a guest editor, that present the very best of emergent ethnohistorical scholarships, are solicited by the editors. Recent special issues have included volumes on graphic pluralism, the Maya, and sexual identities in colonial Mesoamerica. Special issues are selected primarily from participants in the Editors’ Session at the annual meeting of the ASE. Special issues are generally included in the Duke University Press book catalogue.
