CFP: ‘Empires in Perspective’ book series

Janka Romero's picture

Pickering & Chatto’s renowned book series ‘Empires in Perspective’ is inviting new proposals for monographs and essay collections. The series is overseen by Associate Professor Jayeeta Sharma (University of Toronto), and further details are available on the publisher’s website at

This important series examines a diverse range of imperial histories from the early modern period to the twentieth century. Drawing on works of political, social, economic and cultural history, the history of science and political theory, the series encourages methodological pluralism and does not impose any particular conception of historical scholarship. While focused on particular aspects of empire, works published also seek to address wider questions on the study of imperial history.

We welcome submissions for proposals from established scholars and first-time authors alike. To discuss your ideas regarding a monograph or an edited collection of essays, please email Jayeeta Sharma ( and Janka Romero ( We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Jayeeta Sharma, Associate Professor of History, University of Toronto
