Historiography East and West

ISSN: 1570-1867.

Brill´s new online only journal Historiography East and West takes the writing of history as its subject, not history. It deepens our understanding of representations of "history" by comparing Asian practice with Western historio-gra-phi-cal traditions, thus integrating the research on Asian historiography into the ongoing debate on general issues of historiography. At the beginning of the 21st century, the writing of history has regained its central position in the discourse on the future of humankind; scholarly interest in the history and theory of history writing has grown and gone beyond the much-debated Western tradition. It is under these circumstances that Historiography East and West has been initiated as a truly comparative and multi-lin-gual on-line journal. It makes full use of the advanced publication facilities of the Internet. Historiography East and West hopes to contribute to raising the level of sophistication in the field of comparative historiography by focusing on questions of historiographical theory, methodology and narrativity as well as on the role of indigenous historiographical traditions in comparison to exogenous influences in the process of the modernization of history writing. One of the underlying aims is to contribute to a culture of understanding based on mutual respect. Historiography East and West is a multi-lingual online journal with Chinese and English as main publication languages. French, German, and Japanese are used as secondary publication languages. All articles are published with an elaborate abstract in Chinese, English, and the working language of the author. The latter is to facilitate scholars not fluent in English who wish to make their research known to the academic community worldwide.
