Studies in Cultural History: invitation for submissions

PICKERING & CHATTO Studies in Cultural History 
for the International Society of Cultural History

Series editors: Anu Korhonen and Birgitta Svensson

Published with the International Society for Cultural History,

In research and teaching, the vitality of cultural history is
burgeoning, with a variety of interpretations of culture
cross-fertilising between disciplines - history, critical theory,
literature and media, anthropology and ethnology, and many more. 

This series focuses on the study of conceptual, affective and
imaginative worlds of the past, and sees culture as encompassing both
textual production and social practice. It seeks to highlight
historical and cultural processes of meaning-making and explore the
ways in which people of the past made sense of their world.

We welcome contributions that are theoretically informed,
conceptually lucid and empirically grounded, relating to the cultural
history of any time period or geographical area. We appreciate
rethinking of cultural and historical concepts, methods, and
theories, and encourage innovative writing and “experimental”

Submissions are invited from established scholars, as well as less
experienced practitioners, working in the field of ‘cultural history’
in its most inclusive sense. Works accepted into the series will be
scholarly monographs and collections of articles (80–100,000 words)
of high quality and originality.
