The Journal of the Northern Renaissance (JNR) is a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal dedicated to the study of early modern Northern European cultural production. While focussing upon the deployment of the written word, JNR is alert to the full variety of early modern cultural practice, publishing articles that relate to early modern visual culture, philosophy, theology, politics and the scientific technologies of the Northern Renaissance. We place a special emphasis upon questioning the Southern European derivation of our inherited paradigms and upon exploring alternative conceptualisations, geographies and periodisations of the Renaissance. While our principal focus is on the written word, we are interested in the full variety of cultural practices, including the visual arts, costume and other forms of material culture, philosophy, theology and the art of politics. Similarly, although most of the work we publish deals with Northern Europe in the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, we are especially interested in attempts to challenge existing periodizations of the Renaissance in the North, and to establish continuities with earlier and later epochs.

We are proud to be able to offer you high-class articles and book-reviews in an Open Access format, without sacrificing any of the editorial control you will expect from more conventional ‘print’ journals. JNR currently publishes its main issues annually. All JNR publications are double blind peer-reviewed; see further Information. We publish book, film, performance, and exhibition reviews on a rolling basis, so make sure to check back regularly.
