The journal Historical Encounters is looking for submissions for its special issue “Revisiting Epistemic Cognition in History: Historians, Teachers, and Learners”, to be published in 2024.

This will be a follow-up to the special issue “Epistemic Cognition in History”, which was published in April 2022. The new issue seeks to explore both conceptual and empirical approaches to epistemological ambiguity, which is a theme that has been highlighted in research about epistemic cognition in history. It aims to investigate considerations and beliefs held by historians, teachers and/or students that bring to light intersections between different ways of thinking about the subject. Topics that will be addressed include multi-perspectivism, the interpretation of epistemological issues in history curricula and syllabi, as well as the implications of research on epistemic cognition for the training of history teachers.


Deadline for submission of papers: 31 December 2022

Reviews completed: 30 June 2023

Publication: 1 March 2024
