This series in environmental humanities offers approaches to medieval, early modern, and global pre-industrial cultures from interdisciplinary environmental perspectives. We invite submissions (both monographs and edited collections) in the fields of ecocriticism, specifically ecofeminism and new ecocritical analyses of under-represented literatures; queer ecologies; posthumanism; waste studies; environmental history; environmental archaeology; animal studies and zooarchaeology; landscape studies; ‘blue humanities’, and studies of environmental / natural disasters and change and their effects on pre-modern cultures.
 

Proposals Welcome:
We invite scholars at any stage of their careers to share their book proposals and draft manuscripts with us. Publications that make connections between environmental issues in pre-industrial cultures and current issues in sustainability, environmental policy, climate change, and human-nature interactions are especially welcome.

Proposals for monographs or edited volumes should kindly follow the standard AUP Proposal format (see http://en.aup.nl/en/books/authors.html) and should also include the envisaged table of contents or overview of the volume and abstracts of the proposed chapters or articles.

 

For questions or to submit a proposal, contact Commissioning Editors Ilse Schweitzer (ilse.schweitzer@arc-humanities.org) and Erika Gaffney (erika.gaffney@arc-humanities.org).
