Arc Medievalist is a new series that seeks to bridge academic and public medievalist worlds. It encourages work that deciphers the ways in which the one might influence and permeate the other. It interrogates both the intellectual and the emotional encounter, and the use of medieval models in thinking through modern problems.
The Arc prefix signals the credentials of the series in a further way. Arc has become known for fostering the global turn in medieval studies, among other things. This series seeks to encompass scholarly perspectives that make space for Global South traditions and foster globally oriented interventions in medievalist debates.
The series is particularly interested in scholarship in the following areas:
Scholars are encouraged to see the series as a vehicle for innovative work with regard to both form and content. We also welcome books written to appeal beyond an academic readership, opening up paperback potential and extending the reach and longevity of your work.
Submissions may be monographs or edited volumes of 70,000 or more words, shorter “minigraphs” of 45,000 to 60,000 words, or occasional Companion volumes (200,000 words or more).
