Call for Articles

International Encyclopaedia of Ideas of Europe

The Institute for the Study of Ideas of Europe (ISIE) at the University of East Anglia and the international Research Network on the History of the Idea of Europe are soliciting articles for our new online encyclopaedia, a peer-reviewed, open access resource for researchers, students, and the wider public. Our aim is to promote the study of concepts, images, and discourses of Europe across disciplines, regions, and periods. We have an excellent track record, regularly organising international conferences and publishing widely in the field, including two book series with Routledge and De Gruyter Oldenbourg. For our encyclopaedia, we are now looking for contributions of c. 1,500-2,000 words in one of the following categories:

  • Concepts
  • Protagonists
  • Organisations
  • Interactions
  • Images
  • Perspectives

The articles should be fully referenced and be accompanied by a scholarly bibliography. They can summarise key debates and issues, introduce lesser-known themes (especially in the English-speaking world), or showcase ongoing research, especially of doctoral students and early-career academics. Recent contributions include ‘Mitteleuropa/Central Europe’, ‘Colonialism’, and ‘The New Right’, and we have already solicited pieces on Montesquieu, Friedrich Ratzel, and the Risorgimento, for instance. For formatting and referencing guidelines, see our website ( Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to the members of the editorial board listed below, together with a short CV (including a list of publications) and an abstract of 250 words. We are looking forward to your contribution.

On behalf of the editorial board:
