Lilith: A Feminist History Journal – Call for Papers

Lilith: A Feminist History Journal is a double-blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal focused on historical studies of gender, women and feminism, as well as feminist analysis of history, on gender in relation to history pedagogy, and on scholarship about women and gender-diverse historians.

Alongside academic research articles, Lilith also publishes short historiographical and methodological pieces. In addition, we are seeking book reviewers with expertise on topics relating to women’s, gender, sexuality, and feminist history. 

Please note that Lilith only publishes articles that constitute original pieces of research, not previously published or under consideration elsewhere. We encourage submissions from Australian and international postgraduate students and early career researchers, and from scholars in diverse disciplines concerned with empirical and interpretive studies of the historical past.  

Articles should be 6,000-8,000 words in length including referencing. Referencing should be done using the Chicago Manual of Style and footnotes. All submissions should be double-spaced, use Australian-British spelling (see Macquarie Dictionary) and include an abstract of no more than 200 words. 

Original article submissions should be emailed to and conform to the Submission Guidelines. 

Lilith is published on an annual basis. Articles for the following year’s issue must be received by 1 December.
