Traversea is a peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to the publication of research in transatlantic history. Transatlantic history pertains to the interconnectedness of human experience and cross-cultural encounters of Europe, Africa, and the Americas (North and South) from 1500 to the present. Transatlantic history is inherently interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative in approach and moves beyond the boundaries imposed by the concept of the nation state. The editors invite submissions that are historical, geographical, anthropological, literary, sociological, and cartographic in nature. Traversea is operated by doctoral students as a joint project between the Transatlantic History Student Organization and the doctoral program in transatlantic history at the University of Texas at Arlington.

The editors accept submissions written in English, French, Spanish, German, and Portuguese, but all authors must submit an abstract in English approximately 200 words in length.

The call for papers for the upcoming volume is available on the Announcements page.
