This issue brings together five articles that deal with particular concepts in
given historical discourses and are thus seemingly unrelated, but they are
brought together because of their focus on words carrying the suffix -ism.
The following issue will include two more articles that relate to the theme.
The articles were chosen based on an open call for papers that was circulated
widely. In parallel to this issue, a special issue on the political rhetoric of
isms is also being published in the Journal of Political Ideologies. The review
and publication processes have been conducted separately in the two journals,
but in the end the two issues are being published nearly simultaneously,
which will hopefully benefit both Contributions to the History of Concepts and
the Journal of Political Ideologies.
