Call for Manuscripts

The University of Rochester Press welcomes manuscripts in its series: Changing Perspectives on Early Modern Europe. With a number of titles already in print, this series has become one of the leading outlets for publishing monographs on early modern European history. Books in the series include Megan C. Armstrong’s The Politics of Piety: Franciscan Preachers During the Wars of Religion, 1560-1600, J. B. Owens’s “By My Absolute Royal Authority”: Justice and the Castilian Commonwealth at the Beginning of the First Global Age, and Civic Christianity in Renaissance Italy: The Hospital of Treviso, 1400-1530, by David M. D’Andrea.

The editors of the series are James B. Collins, Professor of History at Georgetown University, and Mack P. Holt, Professor of History at George Mason University. They are assisted by a panel of distinguished scholars from a variety of institutions. The editorial board is seeking a mix of titles and formats, normally monographs by a single author. Our current plan is to release 2-4 new works each year.

Changing Perspectives on Early Modern Europe brings forward the latest research on Europe during the transformation from the medieval to the modern world. The series seeks to publish innovative scholarship on the full range of topical and geographic fields. Moving beyond the religious focus of some existing series, Changing Perspectives will include monographs on cultural, economic, intellectual, political, religious, and social history. Chronologically, the series will focus on the period 1400-1789. Geographically, it will include Western Continental Europe, Central and East Central Europe, Mediterranean Europe, and northern Europe. In an effort to avoid overlap with existing series, it will not publish works on the British Isles or on Russia.

To submit an appropriate project for consideration, please send a formal proposal or prospectus to the Series Editors. The proposal should include: 1) a brief but detailed synopsis of the work, outlining its intended contribution to the existing literature; 2) an abstract of 300 words or less, summarizing the work’s content; 3) a complete Table of Contents and one or two sample chapters; 4) an updated CV
