Book Series Critical, Connected Histories

Book Series Critical, Connected Histories The series Critical, Connected Histories seeks to explore unfamiliar social, cultural, and political issues that connect people of Asia, the Middle-East, Africa, America and Europe in the modern age. Current trends in historiography explore transnational flows and networks, with their themes of circulation and connection receiving a welcome appeal.

This new series seeks historical works that challenge legal and imagined boundaries while examining the durability of their structures of power. In addition, the series cautions against the potential universalisation of histories, and situates queries within different vantage points.

Multi-disciplinary in their approach, the books in this series draw from sources in multiple languages and media. They seek to expand our understanding and historical knowledge of events, processes, and movements. In denaturalising the practices of historical writing, this series offers a forum for scholarship that is both theorised and empirically rich, and one that in particular addresses the violence and inequality of the modern ages as well as its promises.

We are especially interested in works that take into account phenomena that occur across state borders such as forced migration, exile, transnational political movements, and works that reflect on historical approaches sensitive to contacts, interconnections, and circulations between and amongst various regions, empires, and cultural areas of the world.

Call for Proposals We seek works that are both theorised and empirical, exposing both the destruction and potential of the modern age, from 1700 onwards. The series focuses on cultural and historical studies and crosscuts the disciplines of modern history, political science, sociology and cultural studies.

We invite scholars at any stage of their careers to share their book proposals and draft manuscripts with us on a subject within the scope of the series. We particularly welcome proposals based on rigorous and innovative interdisciplinary work.

The series will be principally comprised of monographs, but will also include highquality edited volumes. Proposals based on substantially re-worked PhD theses are also welcome.

Proposals for monographs or edited volumes should kindly follow the LUP Book Proposal Form and should also include the envisaged table of contents or overview of the volume and abstracts of the proposed chapters or articles.
