The new Journal of Belgian History


The new Journal of Belgian History (JBH) is an illustrated scientific journal devoted to the history of Belgium in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is the result of a merger between the old RBHC / BTNG (1969-2011) and the Cahiers d'Histoire du Temps présent / Bijdragen tot de Eigentijdse Geschiedenis (1996-2011). The journal publishes high-quality articles, summaries of the work of recent doctoral theses, and reviews of historical monographs concerning the history of Belgium, as well as a debate forum. More information can be found in the editorial of the first issue (click here for consultation).

The journal has been incorporated since 2007 in the ISI Arts and Humanities Citation Index. Four issues are published annually including articles in English, French and Dutch. The new JBH is published by CEGESOMA. The journal has its own website (click here for consultation).

The first issue of 2016 of the Journal of Belgian History has been published

This thematic issue is dedicated to the history of marginal groups and subalternity in contemporary Belgian history. The invited editors-in-chief, Magaly Rodriguez et Amandine Lauro, selected four articles that break away from the traditional "iron triangle" of ethnicity-class-gender categorisations. These articles contribute to new discussion on Belgian society and the dynamics of in-/exclusion in historical perspective.
