Call For Papers

Clio’s Psyche Call for Papers on Sexual Relations in Historical Periods

The Summer 2018 Special Feature
The due date is March 15th

Include keywords, a 100 word abstract, and your biography

Dear Colleague,

Contemporary sexual violation is very much in the news these days, but what about sexuality in
different historical periods and nonwestern civilizations? As a historian I am interested in finding and
publishing articles based on primary sources on the variety of sexual relations in different time periods and
societies. The emotions, ideals, legalities, practices and violations associated with sexuality throughout history
are what we seek. Our aim is to help our readers develop a historical perspective on these complex
relationships as well as to have articles from nonwestern cultures of which I have very limited knowledge.
While we are open to many possibilities, we are especially looking for articles describing and analyzing one of
the following:

- Sexuality and sexual relations in different time periods in a society you have studied in depth
- Same sex sexual behavior in and across cultures
- Status and sexual behaviors in African, Asian, Australian, American (both continents) and European societies
- Sexuality involving children
- Sexuality outside of marriage
- Abduction and rape from the Roman’s violation of the Sabine women to the modern practice
- The complexities of gender and sexuality
- Honor killings
- The aristocratic and royal sexual prerogative
- The ideal of celibacy and it violations: The case of Peter Abelard and Héloïse d'Argenteuil
- Elizabeth Marvick’s work on sexuality in the French royal court in Early Modern Europe
- Reviews of anthropological, historical, or literary books on the subject

We seek articles from 500-2,500 words—including seven to ten keywords, a 100 word abstract, and
your brief biography ending in your e-mail address—by March 15, 2018. An abstract or outline by February
15, 2018 would be helpful. Send them as attached Microsoft Word document (*.docx) files

It is the style of our scholarly quarterly to publish thought-provoking, clearly written articles based upon
historical and psychological insight, and developed with examples from history, current events, and the human
experience. We are open to a wide body of approaches and prefer that articles be personalized (we especially
like case studies) without technical terminology or jargon and without foot/endnotes or a bibliography (use
internal citations for quotations). Submissions the editors deem suitable are anonymously refereed.

For those who are not familiar with our publication and its sponsor, Clio's Psyche is in its 24
th year of publication by the Psychohistory Forum, a 35-year-old organization of academics, clinicians, and laypeople
holding regular scholarly meetings in Manhattan and at international conventions. To find additional meeting
information, membership questionnaires, any other information, or to join the Forum, visit our website at

We hope you can join this important endeavor. Many of our subscribers tell us that they find our
publication to be a lively, compelling read that provides in-depth analyses. Please forward this Call for
Papers to any colleagues (including associations or electronic mailing lists) who may be interested. If you have
any questions about our organization or journal, please e-mail me at

Sincerely yours,

Paul Elovitz, PhD, historian, professor, director of the Psychohistory Forum, and editor, Clio's Psyche
