A price reduction and an anniversary issue of the JBH in 2019Thanks to the financial support of the Universitaire Stichting – Fondation Universitaire and the FNRS we can announce some good news : the cost of the Journal of Belgian History will be reduced. As of 2019, you will pay as an individual reader only 40 euro (without shipping costs) for a subscription of four issues; institutions will pay 60 euro (without shipping costs). One issue will cost only 15 euro (a single issue) or 25 euro (a double sized issue). Bookshops can enjoy a 20% discount. This reduction will not have any impact on the quality of the content, quite on the contrary.
The first issue of the JBH will be published in June 2019. This issue will contain four articles about the position of Flemings in German National Socialist marriage policies, the 'Activist' Council of Flanders (1917-1918), Belgian military armament policies during the 1930s and Belgian diplomacy in relation to president Mobutu's Zaire. The issue also contains book reviews and an overview of new PhD's.
The following issue is already in full preparation as well. No less than three anniversaries will form the cause for the double-sized issue 2-3 : the 50th anniversary of the JBH, the CegeSoma's 50th anniversary and the commemoration of 75 years of the liberation of Belgium. This is why this will be a thematic issue about '75 years of history of WWII' in Belgium, with contribution of ca. 15 authors.
The issue will be presented during a conference in the Belgian senate on 10 December 2019.
An ideal moment therefore to renew or confirm your subscription. Please contact Hilde Keppens (firstname.lastname@example.org), mentionning 'JBH subscription'.
