Information & Culture: A Journal of History<https://infoculturejournal.org/> is actively soliciting articles for publication. The journal publishes high quality, peer reviewed articles on the history of information.

The social and cultural context of information and information technology, viewed from an historical perspective, is at the heart of the journal’s interests. Typical papers might focus, for example, on the histories of information institutions, agencies, domains, or businesses; the history of information work and workers; the history of information in everyday life; the history of information and communication practices; the history of information artifacts (ranging from books to computers, information infrastructures and networks); the history of the organization and classification of information; the history of concepts and theories in the information domain; and intellectual and theoretical approaches for writing information history.

The intention is to juxtapose papers on a wide variety of topics related to the history of information to stimulate connections between the research of library historians, information science historians, historians of print culture, historians of computing, historians of media and communication, labor historians, gender historians, economic historians, business historians, political and diplomatic historians, cultural studies scholars, critical theorists, and science and technology scholars.
