Collection dealing with New Perspectives on the Hundred Years War
Call for articles for a collection on New Perspectives on the Hundred Years War. Editors are L. J. Andrew Villalon, Associate Professor of History at University of Cincinnati (Ohio) and Donald J. Kagay, Associate Professor of History at Albany State University (Georgia). We are interested in articles dealing not only with England and France, but how the conflict impacted on other geographical regions (Italy, the Low Countries, the Duchy of Brittany, Germany). We are also interested in the social, economic, environmental, technological, intellectual, and artistic influence of the war. The full announcement follows:
New Perspectives on the Hundred Years War
Donald J. Kagay, Associate Professor of History at Albany State University (Georgia) and L. J. Andrew Villalon, Associate Professor of History at the University of Cincinnati (Ohio) are currently soliciting essays for their fourth co-edited collection-a volume which will deal with the Hundred Years War!
Those unfamiliar with our past efforts in editing should look at The Final Argument: The Imprint of Violence on Society in Medieval and Early Modern Europe (1998) and The Circle of War in the Middle Ages (1999), both published by The Boydell Press, both reviewed (for the most part favorably) in a number of historical journals. Our third collection, Crusaders, Condottieri, and Cannon : Medieval Warfare in Societies around the Mediterranean is forthcoming with Brill (2002).
The prospective time-frame to publication of the Hundred Years War volume is one and a half to two years-perhaps faster if everything works out. (It rarely does!) We already have eight to ten essays committed to the volume, approximately half the number we envisage.
Most collections dealing with this long-lasting conflict tend to adopt a fairly traditional approach by concentrating upon the central conflict between England and France, with particular emphasis on the great English victories at Crecy (1346), Poitiers (1356), and Agincourt (1415). Our collection will try to expand the focus by looking at topics which have in the past have been somewhat peripheral to Hundred Years War studies. We are particularly interested in articles dealing with the following:
the conflict as it affected the geographical periphery (the Low Countries, Spain, Italy, Germany, Brittany, southern France, the Papacy)
war and disease (especially the Black Death)
the influence of the conflict on historiography, art, and literature
social , economic, and environmental results of the conflict
the influence of the conflict on military technology
military recruitment, logistics, financing
lesser known battles
If you have an essay that might be appropriate to the collection, please consider submitting it to us.
