Aims and Scope
Renaissance Quarterly welcomes essays of various lengths, up to a maximum of 15,000 words (including notes, bibliography, and any appendices). We publish articles in all the fields represented by the RSA. Geographically, the journal’s reach includes Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia, and beyond. Chronologically, the journal focuses on the period 1300-1700 as well as the afterlife of the Renaissance in later periods across cultural production. We seek essays that address an interdisciplinary readership and, ideally, offer theoretical and methodological insights across subfields. Articles should locate their arguments within both specific and broader historical contexts, and explicitly draw their larger implications.
