New series: Renaissance Intellectual History
07.07.2009 at 12:03:49
 
Although this does not fit exactly into this here section of Web4Ren Forum (W4RF) dedicated to calls for papers (CfPs): I guess it fits here best:
 
There is a newly founded series (with Peter Lang), jointly edited by me (Heinrich C. Kuhn (Munich, hck@lrz.uni-muenchen.de) as the main liaison to the publishers - otherwise all four editors are equal) and Sachiko Kusukawa (Cambridge), Marianne Pade (Aarhus) & Gregorio Piaia (Padua).
 
The title of the series is Renaissance Intellectual History .
Traditional monographs, conference acts, editions, and volumes of collected articles can be published in this series if they have their focus on some aspect(s) of intellectual history in the period from ca. 1350 to ca. 1650. Contributions in any language(s) read by at least two of the editors are o.k., including volumes with contributions in several languages.
 
Depending on the expected "popularity" (aka "sales") of the single volumes a financial contribution to the printing costs may (or may not) be necessary to keep the prices of the single volumes affordable even for libraries with rather limited funds for acquisitions (and even "private" buyers).
 
Parallel electronic publication by the authors or/and their institutions is possible. The publishers just want to know about them beforehand and to know about download figures where and when available.
Peter Lang provides (at least according to my past experience) really decent international distribution (including copies for reviewers). They are also rather flexible in matters of formatting. Rebus sic stantibus the volumes will be issued in hardback. Peter Lang has had some fame for fast publication after final submission for quite some time, and we hope that now that their switch to hardbacks has been completed they will once again get as fast as they were.
 
You, the readers of this posting, are cordially invited to suggest/submit any project and/or manuscript you consider suitable for publication in this new series to any of the four editors of this new series.
 
Once we (i.e. any of us) have received such a submission/suggestion we'll distribute it to all of the editors. If we should think we need outside expertise in judging a book/project we'll try to get outside expertise. To be accepted a book/project will need an explicitly favourable vote by at least one of the editors; if there should be different opinions on how to judge a book/project the editors will discuss until no new arguments are brought into the discussion and until they have either reached a rough consensus that the book/project should (or should not) be published in the series or one of the editors casts a "veto" at the end of the discussion. The whole of this process should be completed within five weeks after the manuscript/project has been distributed to the editors.
 
If you have proposals to make: pray do make them.
If you have questions to ask: pray do ask them.
Thanks in advance!

The book series Renaissance Intellectual History published with Peter Lang is/will be discontinued. Too few economically viable and relevant book projects by interested authors were offered to or found by the editors.
