Edited by Jessica Marglin (University of Southern California) and Naor Ben-Yehoyada (Columbia University), the series is backed by an international editorial advisory board and seeks to publish monographs and edited volumes on any humanistic or social scientific dimension of the Mediterranean.
Mediterranean Studies is a growing and dynamic field that combines a trans-regional approach with the specificity of a particular place. The Mediterranean remains a vibrant subject of inquiry in large part because it has served as a meeting point of languages, cultures, religions, and political traditions for millennia.
“This new partnership will foreground Malta University Press’ expertise and tradition in conceptualising scholarship of the Mediterranean” said MUP Chair Prof Jean-Paul Baldacchino. The editors are particularly interested in publishing books that critically engage established conceptions of the Mediterranean through questions and themes central to the field.
The initiative includes funding for MUP’s mentoring programme, an annual online workshop that will provide early career scholars with extensive manuscript feedback from specialists in the field.
Prospective authors should complete the online proposal form and return it via email. For consideration for the mentorship programme, early career researchers should submit their book proposal and at least one sample chapter to the same email by no later than 31 May 2022.
