CARNIVAL – Journal of the International Students of History Association (ISHA) is now sending a call for papers for the next volume: Vol. 19 (2018): Ideology, Radicalism, and Revolution in Modern History.

The editorial board of CARNIVAL invites students (undergraduate and postgraduate) from all disciplines with a connection to the historical sciences to submit articles and reviews for the upcoming issue of our journal. Inspired by the themes of the recent seminars in Budapest and Helsinki, and the centennial of the Russian Revolutions of 1917, students are encouraged to submit works which speak to the topics of revolution, radicalism, ideologies, and historical remembrance.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Revolutions
    • Radicalism and Ideology
    • Nationalism
    • Transnationalism
    • Anti-colonial and post-colonial movements
    • Movements of people and ideas
    • Historical memory
    • Religious, political, and ethnic minorities
    • Gender and sexuality in history (including the role of women in history, sexual minorities, and LGBT history etc.)
    • Cold War


CARNIVAL is a peer-reviewed academic journal directed by a committee of international graduate students and early career researchers affiliated with the International Students of History Association. In addition to showcasing the work of students of the historical sciences, CARNIVAL provides a unique platform from which emerging scholars are able to develop their skills as writers, editors, reviewers and translators, and familiarize themselves with the processes integral to academic publishing. The journal is published annually online.

Abstracts (max. 500 words) should be submitted by 30 November 2017. Abstracts should briefly summarise the proposed topic, methodology to be utilised, and evidence of source material.
