This series in environmental humanities, published by Amsterdam University Press, offers approaches to pre-industrial cultures from interdisciplinary environmental perspectives. We invite submissions (both monographs and edited collections) in the fields of ecocriticism, specifically new ecocritical analyses of under-represented literatures, ecofeminism, and post-humanism; 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.
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 (find our form here) and should also include the envisaged table of contents or overview of the volume and abstracts of the proposed chapters or articles.
Europe: though we may expand to include under-represented literatures and histories from other regions.
Most entries will concern the cultures of the classical, medieval, and early modern periods, including studies of literature, history, and related disciplines.
