Amsterdam Museum Journal

Call for Papers Crop

In fall 2023, Amsterdam Museum will launch the biannual open access, peer reviewed research journal Amsterdam Museum Journal (AMJ).

The journal sets out to connect scholars across disciplines and domains. As such, rather than disciplinary, AMJ is thematically oriented. As a biannual publication, AMJ publishes two different types of themed editions per year: whilst the fall editions (October) center on social themes, such as conflict and gentrification, the Spring editions (April) focus on museum practices, such as new media technologies and art copies.

As the city museum of the eclectic capital of the Netherlands, the art and object we show, the stories we host and the societal topics that occupy us are complex by nature. This complexity requires a polyphonic approach; not one voice can, or indeed should, tell the whole story. We, thus, encourage contributions from scholars in various stages of their research careers, and in a variety of disciplines; from art history to law and from sociology to philosophy, as well as multi-, cross-, trans- and interdisciplinary studies.
