The Cowper and Newton Journal
The Cowper and Newton Journal is published once a year and is distributed to all Friends of the Museum. A subscription to the Journal automatically includes Friends membership. The subscription rates for 2011/12 are: in the UK £6.00 for individual and £10 for joint membership; overseas £12. In all categories postage is included. If you would like to subscribe please contact the Friends Membership Secretary (below).
Libraries may purchase annual subscriptions at a price of £12.50, and individuals at £6.00, both prices inclusive of the cost of postage and packing. Single copies can be supplied, also at £6.00 incl. p&p. Please contact Tony Seward at the address below.
The Journal invites submissions on any topic related to William Cowper, John Newton and their circle but embraces the wider milieu - literary, artistic, religious, historical, horticultural - of their contemporaries (in effect the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries). In keeping with its museum origins, the Journal's scope also covers material culture: the study of relevant objects from the period and their wider significance.
Each issue of the Journal will contain articles of varying lengths, notes on shorter topics, and reviews (of books, but also of exhibitions, plays, films and other relevant productions or events). The focus will be mainly on scholarly research and criticism in the fields listed above, but it will also take in subjects of more general interest such as local topography, family connections, and reminiscences of people and places.
Submissions should be sent as email attachments (preferably as Word documents) to one of the Joint Editors. It would be helpful if contributors could follow the Style Notes: click here to read the Style Notes. The editors reserve the right to make minor changes to work submitted.
Editorial Board: Dr Ashley Chantler (University of Chester), Dr Michael Davies (University of Liverpool), Bill Kelly (Friends/ Production), Elizabeth Knight (Museum Trustee), Professor Bob Owens (Open University), Laura E. Ralph (Trinity Western University, Canada).
