Special Issue Information: The quincentennial of Ponce de Leon’s first visit to Florida (1513) provides a timely opportunity for re-assessing the region’s history and historiography. As the 21st century begins, both the academic community and general public should benefit from a concentrated, chronologically organized analysis of Florida’s past, the scholarship that has interpreted it over the years, and the meanings and implications of both to modern Floridians.
In order to create and publicize these assessments, the FHQ will continue to publish a series of six Special Issues, each devoted to examining Florida over the previous five centuries. Beginning in 2013, a Special Issue will be published each consecutive year (two in 2016) that provides an overview of current interpretations and evaluation of historiographic trends relevant to the period being covered.
