This series investigates the Renaissance as a complex intersection of political and cultural processes that radiated across Italian territories into wider worlds of influence, not only throughout Europe, but into the Middle East, parts of Asia and the Indian subcontinent. It will be alive to the best writing of a transnational and comparative nature and will cross canonical chronological divides of the Central Middle Ages, the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period.

The series intends to spark new ideas and encourage debate on the meanings, extent and influence of the Renaissance within the broader European world.  It encourages engagement by scholars across disciplines -- history, literature, art history, musicology, and possibly the social sciences -- and focuses on ideas and collective mentalities as social, political, and cultural movements that shaped a changing world from ca 1250 to 1650.

Proposals Welcome:

The series welcomes scholarly monographs and edited volumes in English by both established and early-career researchers. Proposals should kindly follow the standard AUP Proposal format and should also include the envisaged table of contents or overview of the volume and abstracts of the proposed chapters or articles.
