About Traversea


Traversea is a peer-reviewed online journal operated by doctoral students as a joint project between the Transatlantic History Student Organization and the Transatlantic History Ph.D. Program at the University of Texas at Arlington. Traversea is 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 the 1400s 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
