Culture & History Digital Journal

Published by Institute of History of the CCHS (CSIC), Culture & History Digital Journal features original scientific articles and review articles, aimed to contribute to the methodological debate among historians and other scholars specialized in the fields of Human and Social Sciences, at an international level.

By doing so, this Journal aims to promote not only new subjects of History, but also new forms of addressing its knowledge.

Topics concerning new historical trends and perspectives are of special interest.

Some of the proposed themes are (but not restricted to):
Feelings and Emotions / Global History / Urban Culture / Unwanted Heritages / Images of the World / Nations and Cultures / Psychoanalysis and Culture / Travels and Travelers.
