Studia Vernacula seeks to publish manuscripts based on original research. Specific relevance to the field of crafts studies is expected. Manuscripts should be about 5–10 pages in length, and should not exceed 22 pages (40,000 characters including spaces).
Practitioner’s CornerThese manuscripts (2–8 pages/3500–14,500 characters including spaces) may be either broadly-scoped overviews of some particular field for non-specialists, or articles where practitioners share and pass on their experience-based knowledge. These papers are primarily aimed for practitioners, rather than academics.
Notes, Reviews and Current ActivitiesThis section includes overviews and commentary on recent events, publications, exhibitions and student work. Normally, these contributions should be 2–5 pages (3500–9000 characters including spaces) in length. Studia Vernacula will publish timely and concise overviews and reviews of recent work relevant to the discipline of crafts studies. We encourage reviews that give a summary of the content and purpose of the work or event, and a discussion of its meaning for current scholarship.
