Focus and Scope

Illes i Imperis is an annual journal edited by Pompeu Fabra Universitat’s Grup de Recerca en Imperis, Metròpolis i Societats Extraeuropees (GRIMSE).

Published since 1998, its focus is colonial and postcolonial societies.

The editorial board is open to all kinds of analyses and approximations to colonial societies and their postcolonial realities, as long as they meet the quality imperatives associated with solid scientific research.

We are especially interested in historical analyses, but we accept and encourage contributions from other fields in the humanities and social sciences. GRIMSE’s interest gravitates towards Latin America, the Philippines and Southeast Asia, as well as Northern Africa and the Hispanic metropolitan world from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. However, the journal is open to articles that address other geographic areas and timeframes. In fact, we encourage submissions of papers that analyze other empires (Portuguese, French, English, Dutch….); articles with comparative perspectives; and analyses that are constructed from the perspective of World History.

Illes i Imperis publishes research papers of qualitative and quantitative material, book reviews, historiographic articles and literature reviews. It also provides information on relevant activities and events that expand our understanding of societies in the colonial and postcolonial world. It serves as an excellent platform to express the scholarly preoccupations of those who concern themselves with said societies.
