Call for Book Proposals: New Series from Ashgate

Posted in books, Calls for Papers, opportunities by Editor on February 23, 2012

As noted at Richard Woodfield’s site at Academia.edu:

Monographs in Art Historiography
A New Series from Ashgate Publishing Edited by Richard Woodfield

The aim of this series is to support and promote the study of the history and practice of art historical writing focusing on its institutional and conceptual foundations, from the past to the present day in all areas and all periods. Besides addressing the major innovators of the past it also encourages re-thinking ways in which the subject may be written in the future. It ignores the disciplinary boundaries imposed by the Anglophone expression ‘art history’ and allows and encourages the full range of enquiry that encompasses the visual arts in its broadest sense as well as topics falling within archaeology, anthropology, ethnography and other specialist disciplines and approaches. It welcomes contributions from young and established scholars and is aimed at building an expanded audience for what has  hitherto been a much specialised topic of investigation. It complements the work of the Journal of Art Historiography. Proposals should take the form of either
1) a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the project; or
2) a formal prospectus including:  abstract, table of contents, sample chapter, estimate of length (in words, not pages), estimate of the number and type of illustrations to be included, and a c.v.

Please send a copy of either type of proposal to both the series editor and to the publisher:
