Journal of Global Catholicism invites submissions

Release Date

The Journal of Global Catholicism, an international, interdisciplinary peer-reviewed e-journal, is now accepting individual articles for consideration.

Launched in 2016 as part of the initiative on Catholics & Cultures at the College of the Holy Cross, the Journal seeks to foster understanding of diverse forms of lived Catholicism with attention to their significance for theoretical approaches in anthropology, history, sociology, media studies, psychology, theology, and philosophy. Since its founding, the Journal has curated special regional issues in collaboration with editors and authors from Poland, Nigeria, India, Hungary, Brazil, and elsewhere. In addition, it has published special thematic issues on Mediating Catholicisms, Pilgrimage Palimpsests, and Pedagogy in Global Catholicism.

The Journal of Global Catholicism, with its parent initiative on Catholics & Cultures, is committed to open access scholarship. Its articles have been downloaded free nearly 30,000 times from 172 countries. In April 2022, the Journal sponsored its first global Graduate Scholar Symposium to develop scholarship, build collegiality and provide mentorship in the emerging field of Lived Catholicism.

Building on this foundation, the Editorial Team will now accept individual articles for peer review. Find policies and submission guidelines on the Journal website. The Editorial Team welcomes inquiries to JGCEditors [at] (JGCEditors[at]holycross[dot]edu).
