The Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies is the official peer-reviewed journal of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies. 

BSPHS embraces a cross-disciplinary approach. We accept works of historical content and/or historical relevance belonging to disciplines outside the field of History such as Literary Studies, Historical Sociology, Historical Anthropology, Art History, etcetera. The main contents of the BSPHS are scholarly individual or coauthored articles and book reviews. Eventually we expect the inclusion of discussion forums and bibliographical reviews. The Bulletin does not accept unsolicited book reviews.

Calls for Proposals

General Issue with a Forum on Doing Iberian History in and about Times of Crisis

For our December 2020 issue, we will accept both general submissions on any topic within the field, and contributions destined for a subsection featuring conversations about Doing Iberian History in and about Times of Crisis.

All general submissions should adhere to the journal’s submission rules and formatting requirements (scroll down to the bottom of this page for guidelines).

Forum submission may follow the journal’s established guidelines, or contributors can work with the BSPHS editorial team to explore the affordances of our new publishing platform as we begin to develop guidelines and procedures for supporting innovative multi-modal oriented work.

The submission deadline for full manuscripts is August 1st, 2020. Please view our submission guidelines (at the bottom of this page) for information about submitting to BSPHS. This issue is slated for publication in December 2020.
