Dear friends and colleagues,

 

 

We are happy to announce the launching of a timely and much needed book series with Peter Lang Publishing, titled “Culture, Society and Political Economy in Turkey”.

 

Drawing from an experience of publication and from an academic network developed by the editors over the years, the series aims at launching new research on culture, society and political economy in Turkey from both established and emerging scholars, with the goal of shaping the field.

We are looking for original material from the areas of sociology, political science, anthropology, political economy and related fields, with a theoretical and empirical focus. As importantly, the series is also looking for translations from materials this far not accessible to the English-speaking audience.

 

Areas covered by the series include the following and related themes:

 

Minorities

Identity

Local politics

Resistance

Social movements

Political parties

Religious-secular divide

Religious orders

Gender

Diaspora

Popular culture

Methodology

Media

Labour relations

Economic developmentalism and sustainability

Populism

Corruption

State formation

Area studies

Regional politics in the Middle East

 

 

The series includes edited volumes and monographs, with 90,000-100,000 words, with 3 titles a year.

 

All book manuscripts will undergo rigorous peer review in order to ensure the quality of the series.

Please send your carefully and professionally copy-edited book manuscripts to both Isabel David (isabela_davidova@yahoo.com – preferred – or isabel.david@iscsp.ulisboa.pt) and Kumru F. Toktamis (kumru@pratt.edu).

We are excited to be editing a series which we will endeavour to make the reference in the field.

 

Sincerely,

 

Isabel David and Kumru F. Toktamis

Is there a deadlıne?

No Deadline! This is a new book series planned for many years.

Indeed no deadline.
Thanks and apologies for the late reply as I am traveling.

Best,

Isabel

Guenter Meyer and Isabel David,

Thank you for your both replies.

So, is the proposal for the whole book, or for one chapter for the coming book? I would appreciate your further explanation for what and how the proposal should be.

Best,

Dear Mohammed,

Thank you for your interest.
Kumru F. Toktamis and I are editing a new book series.
We are looking for proposals for book manuscripts, either monographs or edited volumes. So, yes, full books, not chapters. Books should have between 90,000 to 100,000 words.

Best wishes,

Isabel
