Submit an article for publication in the 2022 issue of Markers, the scholarly journal of the Association for Gravestone Studies. The subject matter of Markers is defined as the analytical study of gravemarkers, monuments, tombs, and cemeteries of all types and encompassing all historical periods and geographical regions. Markers is of interest to scholars in anthropology, historical archaeology, art and architectural history, ethnic studies, material culture studies, American studies, folklore and popular culture studies, linguistics, literature, rhetoric, local and regional history, cultural geography, sociology, and related fields.
Articles submitted for publication in Markers should be scholarly, analytical, and interpretive, not merely descriptive or entertaining, and should be written in a style appropriate to both a wide academic audience and an audience of interested non-academics. Authors are encouraged to send a query email outlining a project before sending a manuscript. Queries and submissions to Markers should be sent to Editor Elisabeth Roark, Professor of Art History and Museum Studies at Chatham University, at [email protected], before September 1, 2021.
