British Art: Global Contexts, 1700–2000
Series Editors: Jason Edwards, Sarah Monks, and Sarah Victoria Turner

Book proposals are welcomed for Ashgate’s series, British Art: Global Contexts, edited by Jason Edwards, University of York; Sarah Monks, University of East Anglia; and Sarah Victoria Turner, University of York. The series provides a forum for the study of British art, design, and visual culture in the global context from 1700 to the present day. Focusing upon the transport, location and reception of British art across the world; the British reception and exhibition of art from around the globe; and transnational and cosmopolitan art containing significant British components; the series seeks to problematize, historicise and specify the idea of ‘British’ art across the period, as it intersects with local, regional, international and global issues, communities, materials, and environments. Books to be published will include monographs and thematic studies, single authored works and edited volumes of essays, specialising in studies of British art within comparative and interdisciplinary frameworks.

Please send a letter of inquiry, or a formal proposal, to Meredith Norwich, Commissioning Editor for Visual Studies, at mnorwich@ashgate.com, AND to the series editors, Jason Edwards, je7@york.ac.uk; Sarah Monks, s.monks@uea.ac.uk; and Sarah Victoria Turner, svt500@york.ac.uk.
