Call for Manuscripts

The University of Rochester Press is accepting manuscripts for its publication series entitled Rochester Studies in East and Central Europe.

Professor Timothy Snyder, Professor of History at Yale University, serves as Series Editor, and is assisted by a panel of scholars from a variety of institutions. The editorial board seeks new projects and formats ranging from monographs to edited volumes representing myriad points of view.

The series encompasses contemporary and historical works relating to all areas of Central Europe including the territory of the former Habsburg Empire, the western Soviet Republics and their successor states, and the Balkans. We seek manuscripts of original historical synthesis on a variety of subjects, and would especially welcome works that cross traditional disciplinary, geographic, and period boundaries (for example on the Ottoman Empire in Southeastern Europe, or the Central European diaspora in Latin America). We will consider works of literature in translation and historical memoir, in both cases only when English language rights are available.

To submit an appropriate project for consideration, please send a formal proposal or prospectus. to the Series Editor. 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.
