Material Culture Review (MCR) solicits articles for publication. MCR is a
peer-reviewed journal published twice a year under the auspices of Cape
Breton University Press. MCR publishes original articles in English and
French that encompass a wide range of approaches
to interpreting culture through an analysis of people’s relationships
to their material world. The journal also publishes research reports and
notes, and critical reviews of books, exhibitions, and historic sites
(see page counts below).
MCR invites submission of new research from the field of material
culture, including cultural history, public history, art history,
geography, archaeology, anthropology, architecture, and intangible
cultural heritage. The editors encourage submissions from graduate
students and scholars at any phase of their professional career,
professionals and historians from the art and museum world, and from
independent scholars with an interest in material culture.
We are currently seeking articles on any topic related to our mandate. Page counts are as follows:
* article (roughly speaking, 20–30 double-spaced pages, including endnotes)
* research report (10–20 pages, including endnotes)
* exhibition reviews (10–15 pages, including endnotes)
* research notes (5–10 pages)
* book reviews (notes and comments less than 5 pages)
The next deadline for complete manuscripts is November 15, 2013.
We also invite potential guest editors to suggest special themes for future issues of MCR.
