A book series on key aspects of historical thinking and practice under the editorship of Professor Alun Munslow is seeking more authors. The series (published by Pearson Longman) examines the discipline of history as it is conceived today in a climate that has increasingly questioned the status of historical knowledge. Authors will be confident in their openness not only to radical developments in their own field, but also willing to help form the agenda for the future.
This call is for proposals in the next batch of titles:
Race and Ethnicity
Gender and Sexuality
Ideas for other topics are welcome. The lead volume in the series was published in 2003 ('The New History' by Alun Munslow) and others will be published shortly (on film, imperialism, family and kinship, class, etc). Contributors will survey the present state of their chosen field, acknowledge its constructed nature, explore its historiography, and explain by example its key features. It will be written in a manner accessible to both students and historians. 80,000 words per volume including Guide to Key Reading and a critical bibliography. Black and while illustrative material may be used.
