Call for Proposals

Ashgate Studies in Publishing History: Manuscript, Print, Digital (book series)

Series Editors:

Ann R. Hawkins, Texas Tech University

Maura Ives, Texas A & M University

Call for Proposals

The editors welcome proposals for interdisciplinary and comparative studies by humanities scholars working in a variety of fields, including literature; book history, periodicals history, and print culture and the sociology of texts; theater, film, and performance studies; library history; history; gender studies; and cultural studies.

 

Topics might include publishing histories of major figures or works, of regions, of genres, or studies of particular publishers or practices (including production, distribution, and reception) that hold special aesthetic, social, or political significance.

 

We especially welcome focused argument-driven work that investigates and historicizes new or hybrid forms of text creation and dissemination, including nonprint materials, informal, specialized or private reception and distribution networks, the translation of TV and movies into print, and multimedia publishing practices.

Proposals should take the form of either

1. a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the project; or

2. a formal prospectus including abstract, table of contents, chapter summaries, sample chapter, estimate of length, estimate of the number & type of illustrations to be included, and c.v.

Please send an electronic copy of either type of proposal to the publisher and to the series editors at the following addresses:
