Books in Transculturalisms, 1400–1700

  • This series presents studies of the early modern contacts and exchanges among the states, polities and entrepreneurial organizations of Europe; Asia, including the Levant and East India/Indies; Africa; and the Americas. Books investigate travelers, merchants and cultural inventors, including explorers, mapmakers, artists and writers, as they operated in political, mercantile, sexual and linguistic economies. We encourage authors to reflect on their own methodologies in relation to issues and theories relevant to the study of transculturism/translation and transnationalism. We are particularly interested in work on and from the perspective of the Asians, Africans, and Americans involved in these interactions, and on such topics as:

    • Material exchanges, including textiles, paper and printing, and technologies of knowledge
    • Movements of bodies: embassies, voyagers, piracy, enslavement
    • Travel writing: its purposes, practices, forms and effects on writing in other genres
    • Belief systems: religions, philosophies, sciences
    • Translations: verbal, artistic, philosophical
    • Forms of transnational violence and its representations.

  • For more information on how to submit a book proposal to the series, please contact Erika Gaffney, at egaffney@ashgate.com.
