Aims and scope

History in Flux is a new academic journal of the Department of History at the Faculty of Humanities, Juraj Dobrila University of Pula. Its first issue appears in December 2019 and thus proudly marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Department of History.

In order to be relevant to society and the world today, contemporary historiography needs to connect scholars across boundaries, be they ethnic, national, social or even generational. History in Flux wants to tackle topics that are of universal relevance, and connect different national historiographies of Europe and beyond, bringing together historians from different traditions and points of view. By following this idea, the journal aims to be a meeting point of global and local perspectives. This is especially important for those historiographies with a tradition of publishing the majority of research in national languages only. While one of our first ambitions is to foster dialogue between Croatian and international scholars, our scope encompasses all of European and world history, from antiquity to contemporary times. (See Preface to the first volume.)

The journal accepts articles in the field of history and other closely related disciplines of humanities.

Thematic volumes or individual articles might be related to the biennial conference Past, Present, Future, organised by the Department of History and hosted at the Faculty of Humanities since 2015, as well as to the biennial conference Socialism on the Bench, organised by the Centre for Cultural and Historical Research of Socialism since 2013, or the annual Doctoral Workshop which has been started within the Centre and the Department in 2015.
