Asian Review of World Histories, founded in 2013, is the official journal of the Asian Association of World Historians (AAWH). This peer-reviewed journal publishes original research articles and book reviews to advance research, teaching, and public discussion on world historical studies in or for the Asian region. It seeks the participation of those who identify themselves as "global," "world," "transregional," "comparative," "international," and "big" historians, and all others with interest in a "connected" study of the past. The journal also acts as a forum for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary conversations and for the collaboration of historians with scholars in adjoining disciplines including and with global historical scholars in all parts of the world.

Earlier issues of Asian Review of World Histories, hosted by the Asian Association of World Historians on a separate server, will be deactivated. All future volumes, together with the back volumes, will be available on Brill’s Books and Journals platform. Volumes 1-5 will be free online.

Contacts, Comparisons, Contrasts. Early Modernity Viewed from a World-Historical Perspective
2023 Impact Factor: 0.3
5 Year Impact Factor: 0.5

The early modern period of world history (ca. 1300–1800) was marked by a rapidly increasing level of global interaction. Between the aftermath of Mongol conquest in the East and the onset of industrialization in the West, a framework was established for new kinds of contacts and collective self-definition across an unprecedented range of human and physical geographies. The Journal of Early Modern History (JEMH), the official journal of the University of Minnesota Center for Premodern Studies, is the first scholarly journal dedicated to the study of early modernity from this world-historical perspective, whether through explicitly comparative studies, or by the grouping of studies around a given thematic, chronological, or geographic frame.

JEMH invites submissions both of individual articles and of proposals for special editions (which may appear up to twice a year). For more information, consult the online Instructions for Authors, or contact the journal at If you have books for review, please contact the Book Review Editor at

The Journal of Global Slavery (JGS) aims to advance and promote a greater understanding of slavery and post-slavery from comparative, transregional, and/or global perspectives, as well as methodological and theoretical aspects of its study. It especially underscores the global and globalizing nature of slavery in world history.

As a practice in which human beings were held captive for an indefinite period of time, coerced into extremely dependent and exploitative power relationships, denied rights (including potentially rights over their labor, lives, and bodies), could be bought and sold, were vulnerable to forced relocation by various means, and forced to labor against their will, slavery in one form or another has existed in innumerable societies throughout history. JGS fosters a global view of slavery by integrating the latest scholarship from around the world and providing an interdisciplinary platform for scholars working on slavery in regions as diverse as ancient Rome, Pre-Colombian Mexico, Han dynasty China, the Ottoman Empire, the antebellum United States, and twenty-first-century Mali.

The journal also promotes a view of slavery as a globalizing force in the development of world civilizations. Global history focuses heavily upon the global movement of people, goods, and ideas, with a particular emphasis on processes of integration and divergence in the human experience. Slavery straddles all of these focal points, as it connected and integrated various societies through economic and power-based relationships, and simultaneously divided societies by class, race, ethnicity, and cultural group.

JGS is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles based on original research, book reviews, short notes and communications, and special issues. It especially invites articles that situate studies of slavery (whether historical or modern-day forms) in explicitly comparative, transregional, and/or global contexts. Themes may include (but are not limited to):
• the different and changing social, cultural, and legal meanings of slavery across time and space;
• the roles that slavery has played in the development of intersecting and interdependent relationships between societies throughout world history;
• comparative practices of enslavement (through warfare, indebtedness, trade, etc.);
• human trafficking and forced migration;
• transregional dialogues and the movement of ideas and practices of slavery and anti-slavery across space;
• slave cultures and cultural transfer;
• political, economic, and ideological causes and effects of slavery;
• religion and slavery;
• resistance;
• abolition, emancipation, and manumission practices from global or comparative perspectives;
• the psychological effects, memories, legacies, and representations of slave practices.

The Journal of Jesuit Studies (JJS) is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal dedicated to the study of Jesuit history from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century. It welcomes articles on all aspects of the Jesuit past and present including, but not limited to, the Jesuit role in the arts and sciences, theology, philosophy, mission, literature, and interreligious/inter-cultural encounters.

In its themed issues the JJS highlights studies with a given topical, chronological or geographical focus. In addition there are two open-topic issues per year. The journal publishes a significant number of book reviews as well. One of the key tasks of the JJS is to relate episodes in Jesuit history, particularly those which have suffered from scholarly neglect, to broader trends in global history over the past five centuries. The journal also aims to bring the highest quality non-Anglophone scholarship to an English-speaking audience by means of translated original articles.

The Journal of Jesuit Studies is published in Open Access thanks to generous support from the following institutions:
- Adam Mickiewicz University
- Fairfield University
- Loyola University Chicago
- Universidad Iberoamericana
- Universidad Loyola Andalucía
- The University of Scranton

Memory Studies Review provides a unique platform for multidisciplinary research spanning a wide range of methodologies and theoretical frameworks across the field of memory studies. The journal is invested in exploring the ways in which the individual and collective, social and psychological, and political and cultural dimensions of memory interact with understandings of time, space, place, and scale. We are especially interested in the relationship between memory and environments of different kinds. We ask: how does memory shape and how is memory constituted by the natural world and built environments, as well as political, social and technological settings and surroundings? The journal seeks to establish an arena for a fourth wave of memory studies: an ecological, ecocritical, and post-humanist turn. We invite new research which explores memory in terms of ecosystems and the Anthropocene. We likewise encourage scholarship with innovative understandings of agency in order to enable a reconsideration of the interrelation of subjectivity and materiality, and the human and non-human.
