*I love this approach to histories of states and nations: “*I*nterdisciplinary
in its approach, Maritime Humanities, 1400–1800: Cultures of the Sea
<http://en.aup.nl/series/maritime-humanities-1400-ndash-1800-cultures-of-the-sea>
puts maritime humanities at the centre of a transnational historiographical
scholarship that seeks to transform traditional land-based histories of
states and nations by focusing on the cultural meanings of the early modern
ocean. The series welcomes books from across the full range of humanities
subjects, and invites submissions that conceptually engage with issues of
globalization, post-colonialism, eco-criticism, environmentalism, and the
histories of science and technology.”*

*Description:* Early modern oceans not only provided temperate climates,
resources, and opportunities for commercial exchange, they also played a
central role in cultural life. Increased exploration, travel, and trade,
marked this period of history, and early modern seascapes were cultural
spaces and contact zones, where connections and circulations occurred
outside established centres of control and the dictates of individual
national histories. Likewise, coastlines, rivers, and ports were all key
sites for commercial and cultural exchange.

Interdisciplinary in its approach, *Maritime Humanities, 1400–1800:
Cultures of the Sea* welcomes books from across the full range of
humanities subjects, and invites submissions that conceptually engage with
issues of globalization, post-colonialism, eco-criticism, environmentalism,
and the histories of science and technology. The series puts maritime
humanities at the centre of a transnational historiographical scholarship
that seeks to transform traditional land-based histories of states and
nations by focusing on the cultural meanings of the early modern ocean.

*Proposals welcome*: The series welcomes scholarly monographs and edited
volumes in English by both established and early-career researchers. While
we are happy to consider proposals for whole essay collections, please note
that we are not able to place proposals for individual essays.

Proposals for monographs or edited volumes should kindly follow the standard
AUP Proposal format <http://en.aup.nl/en/books/authors.html> and should
also include the envisaged table of contents or overview of the volume and
abstracts of the proposed chapters or articles.

*Further Information*: Having originated with Ashgate, since 2018, this
series is published by Amsterdam University Press.

For questions or to submit a proposal, contact the Acquisitions
Editor, Erika Gaffney: erika.gaffney at arc-humanities.org.
