Call for Manuscripts
The University of Rochester Press is accepting manuscripts for its book series Rochester Studies in East and Central Europe. Timothy Snyder, Bird White Housum Professor of History, Yale University, serves as series editor, and is assisted by a panel of prominent scholars from a variety of institutions. The editorial board seeks new projects in formats ranging from monographs by a single author to edited collections representing a wide array of points of view.
The series encompasses contemporary and historical works relating to all areas of East and Central Europe including the territory of the former Habsburg Empire, the western Soviet Republics and their successor states, and the Balkans. Works that treat German history in relation to East and Central European themes are also welcome. We seek manuscripts of original historical synthesis on a variety of subjects, and 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 and historical memoir in translation, in both cases only when English-language rights are available. We are also interested in works that combine literary and historical perspectives.
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; and 4) an updated CV.
