The Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary periodical that "publishes articles and reviews on cultural history from the late fifteenth to the late nineteenth centuries". With a focus on drawing connections between fields, the Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies strives to provide a venue where ideas from traditionally segregated areas of scholarship - sociology and anthropology; history, economics, and political science; philology and literary criticism; art history and iconology; and African, American, European, and Asian studies - are brought together. Challenging "the boundaries that separate such traditional scholarly disciplines while also bringing those disciplines into contact with each other" the Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies presents a progressive dialogue between scholarly research initiatives.
