Call for Chapter Proposals: Cultural History of Monarchy



The editorial team for Bloomsbury’s Cultural History of Monarchy welcome


proposals for one of the six-volumes in our collection.






Please note that this call is different to a normal edited collection


where authors propose topics on varied subjects which relate


specifically to their research. Instead, we are looking for proposals


from authors who are interested in writing one of the specific chapters


(see information below) in one of the particular volumes of the series.


The framework of the Bloomsbury Cultural History series uses the same


chapter structure across all six volumes of each ‘set’--if you are


unfamiliar with the series, we recommend familiarising yourself with the


many published collections within the Cultural Histories series. Please


keep in mind that we are NOT able to change the chapter structure or


temporal divisions between the volumes at this stage–authors need to


work within the framework given.





We are particularly keen to bring a global outlook to our collection and


want authors to avoid framing their chapters with an exclusively


eurocentric focus. While we do not expect every chapter to address


monarchies in every cultural/geographic context, we do ask the authors


frame their chapter with a global perspective, bringing in examples/case


studies from monarchies in various areas of the world. We encourage you


to co-author your chapter with a colleague (or colleagues) in the field


who specialises in a different region of the world in order to achieve


the global outlook that we are aiming for. If you have not proposed a


co-author in your proposal, please indicate if you are willing for us to


potentially pair you with another colleague/other colleagues in the


field whose work would be complementary to yours.


Chapters include: "conceptualizing monarchy", "rites, ritual and


ceremonial", "religious, intellectual and cultural patronage", "place


and space", "image and representation", "intradynastic, imperial and


international networks".



Your proposal should be 250-500 words long and should clearly address


the topic of the chapter from our chapter framework with a clear


description of the proposed content. Your proposal should demonstrate


how you intend to achieve the chapter remit with a suitably global


outlook. To submit your proposal, please fill out the submissions form


and upload your proposal there, along with your CV (and that of your


co-author/s).



DEADLINE for Proposals: Friday 15 March 2024



If you have any questions about the Cultural History of Monarchy


collection or the proposal process, please contact the General Editor,


Dr Elena (Ellie) Woodacre (Ellie.Woodacre@winchester.ac.uk) or the 19th


century volume editor, Pr Françoise LE JEUNE
