Announcement of New Book Series in Intercultural Transfer Studies with Anthem Press

We invite authors from the humanities and social sciences to submit book proposals and manuscripts for our new book series in Intercultural Transfer Studies. We seek manuscripts that highlight the interconnected nature of the modern world since the fifteenth century. Book proposals and manuscripts should focus on the processes of intercultural contacts and transfers that shaped human societies and cultures.
