Call for Reviews from the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

We are seeking book reviewers for Comitatus 51 (Fall 2020), the graduate student journal published by the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. All book reviews are due August 17, 2020, and should be between 800 and 1500 words in length. The list of titles is posted on our website at

If you would like to review one or more of these titles, contact Allison McCann, UCLA-CMRS Publications Manager ( Please include your university affiliation and a brief explanation of your research interests and the qualifications that make you an ideal reviewer for a given book.

As a part of the ongoing global response to COVID-19, CMRS staff have been working from home since March 13. Unless and until we are permitted to return to our offices, review copies cannot be shipped or picked up as usual. In light of this, we would like to encourage reviewers to select titles that are available digitally. We have already secured digital access to many of the titles currently sitting in hard copy on CMRS shelves. If a title in the attached list is marked with two asterisks (**), it is available for digital review and the CMRS possesses a hard copy, meaning that digital access is immediately available and the hard copy could be shipped out or picked up once stay-at-home orders are lifted. Any title marked with a single asterisk (*) is available for review in a digital format, but the CMRS does not currently possess a hard copy. If digital access is not indicated next to a title, or if you would like to review a title that is not listed, please contact Allison in any case. We may be able to arrange a digital copy or direct shipment with the publisher.

Please note that, due to high shipping costs, the CMRS can only ship books to reviewers located within the United States.

Dr. Allison McCann, Publications Manager
