Amsterdam University Press (AUP) publishes more than 30 titles in History each year. Our series cover everything from late antique, medieval and early modern European history, to broader cultural heritage and contemporary studies, including topics such as memory studies and genocide. AUP also works in partnership with Arc Humanities Press (Arc) who operates as a specialist imprint, with a focus on premodern studies. Arc was established as the publishing arm of the learned society for medieval studies worldwide, CARMEN Worldwide Medieval Network, and comprises a dozen acquisitions and publishing experts from around the world.
