Established in 1961, History and Theory is the leading journal in the world for the study of theory and philosophy of history. Despite its focus, H&T is in many ways a general journal that addresses our understanding of history and the past. The journal publishes articles and reviews essays principally in these areas: critical philosophy of history; speculative philosophy of history; historiography; history of historiography; historical methodology; critical theory; time and culture; and history and related disciplines. Each annual volume consists of four numbers; the fourth number is usually in the form of a Theme Issue.
