Old World
Journal of Ancient Africa and Eurasia

Online ISSN: 2667-0755

Old World publishes contributions in all the humanities which deal with different aspects of the African and Eurasian past. It aims to enrich the academic discourse by promoting high-quality research that moves beyond the conventional Eurocentric paradigms. To achieve this goal, Old World particularly endorses two methodological approaches. On the one hand, the journal is interested in contributions that examine Africa and Eurasia as a networked space, prioritizing connections and exchange over the geographically constrained studies related to political and cultural 'centres' in the past or present. On the other, the journal encourages authors to creatively incorporate into their research elements of ontological frameworks and insightful concepts from the cultures of their study.

Hosted at a vibrant East Asian institution, the journal encourages submissions from scholars who share more inclusive and innovative approaches to the study of the pre-modern world.
