        Subject: Critical Historical Studies

Allow me to quote from an advert sent me by the University of Chicago 
Press about a new journal that, based solely on the following 
description, I think will be of wide interest here.

> Critical Historical Studies is a new interdisciplinary journal
> devoted to historical reflections on politics, culture, economy, and
> social life. CHS features research on the implications of
> socio-economic transformations for cultural, political, and social
> change. In the broad tradition of Critical Theory, CHS will explore
> the complex connections between cultural form and socio-economic
> context and promote a reflexive awareness of the researcherÂ’s own
> position in the history of global capitalist society.

> Critical Historical Studies publishes monographic research articles,
> theoretical articles, review essays, and critical reflections on
> current cultural, political, and scholarly issues. The journal aims
> to foster interdisciplinary exchange among scholars across the entire
> range of the social sciences and humanities, and publishes work on
> all historical eras and regions of the world.
