Aims and scope
Established in 2010, “The Romanian Journal of Modern History” is a peer-reviewed journal published under the auspices of the Faculty of History within “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iaşi. Ever since its appearance, the journal tried to represent a meeting and communication place for both young researchers and PhD students and consecrated researchers and historians, from Romania and abroad.
It is one of the very few Romanian journals targeting exclusively the modern history in all its aspects and expressions, encouraging an interdisciplinary exploration of the generous concept of “modernity” and its influence upon the Romanian and universal history. At the same time, it aims to be a path of dialogue and interconnection, promoting Romanian modernity abroad and bringing to the attention of Romanian specialists various aspects of universal modernity.
As a natural follow-up, the articles and book reviews cover topics regarding Romanian and universal modern history (especially 18th and 19th centuries), trying to provide a generous range of interpretations and analyses for nowadays historiography.
