Call for Papers

Are you an MA or first- or second-year PhD student looking for your first publication? We invite you to submit your work for the Summer 2021 issue of Past Tense Graduate Review of History.

Past Tense is a peer-reviewed journal run by the graduate students of the Department of History at the University of Toronto. Since publishing its first issue in 2012, Past Tense has been dedicated to providing early career academics experience with anonymous peer-review processes and showcasing high-quality graduate student work. Although subjects must be historical, we welcome articles focused on a broad geographic and chronological range.

We accept original research articles (20-30 double spaced pages), book reviews of recent publications (500-750 words), and critical commentaries on issues in the field of history (about 1500 words).

Please review our Submissions page for more information on the types of submissions we accept. Information on style and format requirements can be found on the For Authors and Style Guide pages of our website.
