Borderlines

Borderlines welcomes monographs and edited collections that, while firmly rooted in late antique, medieval and early modern periods, are “edgy” and may introduce approaches, methodologies or theories from the social sciences, health studies, and the sciences. Typically, volumes are theoretically aware whilst introducing novel approaches to topics of key interest to scholars of the pre-modern past. Publications of conventional length (70,000 to 110,000) as well as short-form (45,000 to 60,000) are accepted.

Borderlines launches a third pillar of content for Arc Humanities Press (beyond the original two pillars of the global past, and social impact research and applied research into the past). It reinforces one of CARMEN’s key aims, namely to foster research links beyond the humanities. The series therefore operates under the auspices of the CARMEN Publications Committee.
