Call for Submissions: Historical Dialogues Working Paper Series

Contact Email:
Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability

The Historical Dialogue, Justice, and Memory Network is seeking submissions for its Working Paper Series.

Launched in 2014, the Working Paper Series provides a platform for emerging scholars, practitioners and others to ‘workshop’ unpublished texts within our intellectual community. The Working Paper Series welcomes texts on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Historical dialogue
  • Historical and transitional justice
  • Public and social memory
  • Museums, monuments, memorials
  • Peacebuilding

Working Papers will be featured on the Network website for a period of approximately two months, as well as in the Network’s bimonthly newsletter, and on its blog, Twitter, and Facebook pages. Through these forums, we invite our community to act as discussants for each Working Paper, aiming for responses from junior/emerging scholars, practitioners, and more established scholars, with the goal of generating useful feedback for revision.

There are no restrictions on the topic, length, or format for submissions, though it is recommended that submissions be fewer than 30 pages in length and required that a consistent citation method with complete references is used. There are no restrictions on author affiliation, training, or experience. Working Papers can take any form, such as a policy memo, a practice-oriented program outline, or a scholarly contribution.

Copyright will remain with the author, so posting in the WP series will not prevent you from pursuing publication of the paper at a later date. Your paper will be archived once a new WP is posted, or if you request its removal.

The Working Paper Series is an excellent opportunity to receive interdisciplinary feedback on your ideas and to improve the quality of your writing. If you have any questions about the series or would like to submit a paper, please contact the co-editors Sigrun Schaumburg-Müller and Tim Wyman-McCarthy at
