Monograph Proposals Invited for Palgrave Studies in the History of the Media
Call for Monograph Proposals
In May this year, Palgrave Macmillan published the first volume of its monograph series Palgrave Studies in the History of the Media. The series was established to promote the cross-disciplinary field of media history. Its ambition is to promote cutting-edge scholarship. Its scope is broad, covering all forms of media in all periods of history from the middle ages to the modern day. The series seeks to reflect the variety of different subjects, approaches and methods that characterise this scholarly field of enquiry.
The core intellectual aim of this series is to publish a succession of volumes which will encourage dialogue between scholars and students with a common interest in the history of communication.
For more information, including monographs currently under contract in the series, please see http://www.ucd.ie/mediahis/docs/SeriesFlyer.pdf
