Such “literature” includes widely-accepted genres such as the novel, short story, drama, and poetry, but may also include proverbs, folksongs, and other traditional forms of linguistic expression.

Journal of Early Modern Christianity

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Journal of Early Modern Christianity

From the de Gruyter website:

“The Journal of Early Modern Christianity (JEMC) is published with our partner Refo500 and its academic department RefoRC. It intends to contribute to interdisciplinary, interconfessional, and comparative research on early modern Christianity.

“The journal bears out its interdisciplinary character by including a variety of relevant disciplines, such as church history, social history, cultural history, art history, literary history, history of ideas, history of music and archeology. Its interconfessional approach means that it includes contributions covering the major confessions of early modern Christianity, as well as Christian minorities and dissenters that were not recognized by any of these mainstream confessional traditions.

“JEMC also incorporates topics concerning the relationship between Christianity and other religions in the early modern period (Judaism, Islam, etc.). The journal’s comparative approach gives expression to a broader intellectual ambition of stimulating research that is not restricted to a local or national scope, but takes advantage of the rich theoretical possibilities of comparing and synthesizing at a European, international, and even global level. In terms of chronology, the Journal primarily covers the period from 1450 to 1700.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2014) to present.

Max Weber Studies

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Max Weber Studies

From the journal website:

Max Weber Studies seeks an engagement with the fundamental issues in the social and historical sciences: the dilemmas of life-conduct and vocation in the contemporary world, the tracking of rationalization processes and their impact, disenchantment and the return of magic, the ‘uniqueness of the West’ and multiple modernities, the analysis of the stratification of power and its modalities, and the validity of an interpretative science of social reality. The journal asserts the continuing place of Weber in the conversation of both classical and contemporary social and cultural theory.

“The journal is an indispensable source for the translation of new Weber texts and the publication of unpublished correspondence. It offers extensive reviews of every new volume published by the Max Weber Gesamtausgabe and analyses the emerging work-history of Weber’s writings. It is very much interested in milieu analysis of European intellectual thought 1880-1920, in particular movements of social reform, the women’s movement, cultural currents, family history, the universities, and politics both nationally and internationally. The journal also undertakes the reflexive analysis of the reception of Max Weber in different language communities.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2000) to present.
