Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The editorial board of CROMOHS extends our thoughts and good wishes to our friends and colleagues around the world, and we offer our deepest sympathies to those experiencing loss, illness, isolation and financial strain due to the extraordinary circumstances caused by the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our lives and our world will be transformed in unforeseen ways. We only hope the outcome will lead to something better for societies and communities.

People closely associated with the journal are working remotely. Nevertheless, we are processing submissions and communications as normal.

CROMOHS is a peer-reviewed, open-access electronic history journal published in English, and over the last two decades has established a solid reputation for scholarly rigour. With a marked international outlook, it aims to encourage methodological debate arising from original and creative dialogue between scholarly traditions, and to promote innovative approaches to archival research. CROMOHS acts as a focal point and forum for challenging and fresh scholarship on fourteenth- to nineteenth-century intellectual, social and cultural history in a global perspective. It seeks to move beyond a strictly regional and Eurocentric approach, with a preferential view towards histories of transcultural contacts and connections. Articles relating to Muslim societies (fourteenth-nineteenth centuries) are most welcome. More generally, CROMOHS strongly encourages contributions engaging with extra-European cultures and societies. CROMOHS invites theoretically informed work from a range of historical, cultural and social domains that interrogate cross-cultural and connected histories, intersecting the history of knowledge, emotions, religious beliefs, ethnography, cartography, the environment, material culture and the arts.
