New Directions in Medieval Studies

Series editors/advisors:

Andrew Elliott, University of Lincoln
Helen Young, Deakin University

This wide-ranging monograph series responds to emerging themes and interdisciplinary research methods in medieval scholarship, including the reception and reworking of the medieval in the post-medieval period. Particular concerns involve cataloguing the rich variety of experience of medieval people and exploring cultural transfer across different periods, places and groups. These are expressed in the many scholarly themes highlighted below and, taken together, seek to contribute to the future directions and debates of medieval studies.

Medieval lives including marginal voices, variation and dissimilitude 
Cultural exchange and interconnectedness across medieval Europe
The reception and re-use of the Middle Ages in later periods
Re-evaluating medieval history from a global perspective

We particularly welcome proposals from scholars working in the following areas:

religious and ethnic minorities
gender and queer history
emotional communities
postcolonial perspectives
travel, trade and migration
work that extends reception of the Middle Ages beyond the predominantly British perspectives of published work to date
digital and new media receptions
work responding to the idea of an ‘ethical turn'
I.B.Tauris New Directions in Medieval Studies seeks to build on I.B.Tauris’s independent, globally-oriented emphasis by encouraging scholars to use the series as a springboard for presenting their research in innovative ways.  We welcome content presented in such a way as to appeal to both general and academic readerships, opening up paperback potential and extending the reach and longevity of your work.

Titles in the series are peer-reviewed and initially published in hardback with bespoke full-colour cover, and with simultaneous publication as a competitively priced e-book. Your book will benefit from I.B.Tauris’s global marketing and will be represented at academic conferences around the world.
