Call for book proposals – Court Cultures of the Middle Ages and Renaissance

Peter Lang would like to invite book proposals for the series
Court Cultures of the Middle Ages and Renaissance
Series Editor: Dr Sarah Alyn Stacey, Trinity College Dublin
Court Cultures of the Middle Ages and Renaissance is a peer-reviewed series focused on the inter- and multi-disciplinary cultural output of medieval and Renaissance court culture on an international scale. The series invites proposals for single- and multi-authored monographs, edited collections and editions of early works relating to the court.
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit proposals which highlight the central importance of the court to medieval and Renaissance culture, including projects that explore the life and/or works of writers, artists, historiographers, soldiers, composers, diplomats and courtiers, in the East as well as the West. Other areas of particular interest are courtly ritual (e.g. chivalric code, ceremonies, spectacle) and literary and artistic representations of the court. The series also explores the role of the court in shaping national, religious and political identities, as well as its function as an interface between different cultures.
Each proposal will be vetted by the specialists on the series editorial board and will undergo a comprehensive peer-review process.
