History & Memory (http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/ham)
History & Memory explores the manifold ways in which the past shapes the present and is shaped by present perceptions. The journal focuses on a wide range of questions relating to the formation of historical consciousness and collective memory. Along with its interest in the legacies of Nazism, fascism and the Holocaust, their impact on contemporary imagination and their diverse representations, History & Memory is concerned more generally with the role of memory in modern and premodern cultures, and the relationship between historical research and images of the past in different societies and cultures.
The journal aims to explore not only official representations of the past in public monuments and commemorations but also the role of oral history and personal narratives, the influence of the new media in shaping historical consciousness, and the renewed relevance of history writing for emerging nations and social.conflicts. The journal welcomes both case studies and theoretical contributions which question notions of memory, both lay and scholarly, and experiment with new methodologies for exploring its workings.
The journal is edited at the Eva and Marc Besen Institute for the Study of Historical Consciousness, Tel Aviv University.
Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice (http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/10402659.asp)
Peace Review is a quarterly, multidisciplinary, transnational journal of research and analysis, focusing on the current issues and controversies that underlie the promotion of a more peaceful world. Social progress requires, among other things, sustained intellectual work, which should be pragmatic as well as analytical. The results of that work should be ingrained into everyday culture and political discourse. We define peace research very broadly to include peace, human rights, development, ecology, culture and related issues. The task of the journal is to present the results of this research and thinking in short, accessible and substantive essays. Each issue develops a particular theme, however, we run both on-theme and off-theme essays.

We have also in recent years published more work by feminist activists, including commentaries, short reports, and interviews and have strengthened our connection with contemporary artists by publishing full color, high quality art reproductions in each issue. As our history reflects, Feminist Studies has not remained stagnant; we continue to seek out new ways to remain a vital forum for scholars as well as activists involved in all aspects of feminist practice.
