Arc Humanities Press (Arc) operates as a specialist ALP (academic-led press) from its registered office in Yorkshire, with a focus on the history and impact of the past. It was established as the publishing arm of the learned society for medieval studies worldwide, CARMEN Worldwide Medieval Network.
Arc publishes scholarly research across premodern interdisciplinary studies. It takes in the late antique, medieval, and early modern periods from a global perspective; area studies (within and beyond Europe); digital humanities; and research that fosters better public engagement in, and understanding, of the past and the links the premodern world has with the contemporary world. It aims to publish “edgy” research.
Arc offers its authors rigorous acceptance standards, rapid turn-round times, newest digital outputs, including full Open Access compliance, and works in partnership with Amsterdam University Press (AUP) and its agents to provide worldwide distribution in print and digitally.
Arc's management and acquisitions editors are experts in the premodern past, the majority having doctorates in medieval studies. In less than a decade Arc has created a distinct, highly regarded role in the field, publishing cutting-edge monographs by scholars from the leading institutions in the world. Information about submitting proposals and our publishing process is found on Arc's website.
