Welcome to the Electronic Sixteenth Century Journal
In publication since 1969, the Sixteenth Century Journal (SCJ) prints twenty to twenty-five articles and over four hundred book reviews a year. The SCJ is dedicated to providing readers with thought-provoking research and inquiry into the sixteenth century broadly defined (i.e., 1450-1648). Our articles all maintain a strong historical core and cover subjects from around the world.
Vol. 50, no. 4 is now available online! Please log in to your account to access the latest from the Sixteenth Century Journal!
Due to COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended shipping hard copies to our customers who subscribe to both digital and print. Once postal systems are accepting mail, we will send out the hard copies. Thank you for your patience!
In keeping with the SCJ Book Review Office’s tradition of sponsoring pedagogy essays in the SCJ and panels at the SCSC and other conferences, we will publish a special supplement to volume 51 (2020) devoted to teaching in the age of SARS CoV-19. This special Early Modern Classroom supplement will appear online at escj.org, open access, and articles will be posted as they become available, beginning in the summer of 2020. The published submissions will be peer reviewed.
We invite submissions of ca. 1200-word essays that address any of the following questions:
- What have you learned from shifting teaching to fully online platforms? How will any lessons learned inform your teaching once face-to-face instruction resumes?
- How does the early modern world specifically lend itself to online teaching? What specific case studies work well in an online environment, or highlight issues that connect with the global pandemic?
- What role does digital, shareable content play in your classes, either for analysis/discussion or as student-created projects?
The SCJ continues production work from home! In interest of safety, we have decided to hold all print copies at our main office until it is safe to mail them. All users will be able to access the electronic version on http://escj.org
50-3 is available online! Due to university closure because of COVID-19, we are not sure when the print copies will be mailed to subscribers.
