Parergon

Parergon is the journal of the Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (Inc.) - known as ANZAMEMS.


Parergon is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles and book reviews on all aspects of medieval and early modern literature, history, and culture. We are especially interested in material that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries and takes new approaches.

Parergon has moved to an online submission system. To submit an essay for consideration in Parergon, please create an account from the 'Register' tab at the top of the page (if this is your first time using the online system), and select ‘New Submission’ from your User Home page. Otherwise, please log in to your existing account. A guide to submitting can be found here.

Essays should be typically around 8000 words in length, double-spaced, with footnotes kept to a reasonable proportion, and accompanied by a 100-word abstract. Authors should observe the conventions of the Modern Humanities Research Association, as outlined in the MHRA Style Guide (3rd edn, 2013).

Essays should be substantially original, advance research in the field, and have the potential to make a significant contribution to the critical debate. Parergon does not accept submissions that have already been published elsewhere.

Parergon uses a double-blind peer review system, and the review process may last up to 6 months.
