Submission Guidelines

Interdisciplinary Humanities defines “interdisciplinary humanities education” as any learning activities with content that draws upon the human cultural heritage, methods that derive from the humanistic disciplines, and a purpose that is concerned with human values. Academic courses don’t have to be labeled “humanities” to be interdisciplinary. Integrated courses and units are often disguised under such names as World History, Freshman English, Music Appreciation, Beginning Spanish, Introduction to Religion, Senior Honors, etc. Integration can range from the use of a novel in a history course to team teaching to comprehensive thematic extravaganzas that combine the arts, literature, philosophy, and social sciences.

HERA welcomes manuscripts from university colleagues, but also ones that examine interdisciplinary scholarship and education in elementary grades, teacher education, adult public programs, graduate seminars, educational radio and television, museums, and historic parks. We ask that you use the Chicago Manual of Style and that you use it consistently. All notes should appear as endnotes at the conclusion of your essay, and should precede any bibliographical listings and appendixes. The editors ask that you have full bibliographic citations before you send your essay.

Artists wishing to have their works published on the cover of IH should submit works that are representative of the theme(s) of a particular issue.

Essays should be typed and double-spaced, formatted for printing, on standard paper with one-inch margins and submitted electronically as Microsoft Word documents to co-editors: Stephen Husarik, stephen.husarik@uafs.edu and Lee Ann Elliott Westman, lewestman@utep.edu. Place your name and affiliation in the upper right hand corner of the first page of your manuscript.

Essays should not exceed 6,000 words. Interdisciplinary Humanities observes a "blind reading" policy, and considers carefully the recommendations of outside readers whose expertise corresponds with the essay’s subject matter. If you would like to use reproductions of images, we ask that you procure copyright permission for these once your essay is accepted. Camera-ready line illustrations and high resolution black and white photographs often reproduce well. Permissions and copyright fees, if any, are the responsibility of the author and should be arranged for and paid before submitting the article.

Editorial decisions for publication are normally made within four months following submissions. If your essay is accepted, you will be sent a pre-press style sheet with reformatting instructions.

*Please note: The Humanities Education and Research Association, Interdisciplinary Humanities’ parent organization, requires that authors become members of HERA if their essays are accepted for publication. Information on membership may be found at http://www.h-e-r-a.org/hera_join.htm.
