About the Journal

The Journal of Mennonite Studies deals with all aspects of Mennonite studies. It is published in late spring by the Chair in Mennonite Studies at The University of Winnipeg in cooperation with other Mennonite institutions and organizations.

Established in 1983, the Journal publishes scholarly articles in the areas of history, sociology, literature, economics, and the arts, including music. From time to time the Journal carries hitherto unpublished poetry and prose.

The Journal seeks to deal with Anabaptist-Mennonite issues from the Reformation period to the present. While the Journal's focus is on Canadian-Mennonite studies, particularly the history and culture of Mennonites of Prussian-Russian and Swiss background in Canada, the experience of Mennonites in the United States and around the world, including the earlier Anabaptist period is also covered.

Readers' response to the journal has been most encouraging. Scholars have welcomed another academic Mennonite journal, and educated readers of all walks of life find the Journal helpful in their efforts to understand the faith, life and contributions of the Mennonites in Canada and throughout the world.

600 copies of the Journal are printed every year. Subscribers to the Journal include specialists, laypersons, students in colleges and universities, and libraries in Canada, the United States and Europe.
