Contributions for the Book Series “Critical, Connected Histories” (Leiden University Press)

The book series “Critical, Connected Histories,” from Leiden University Press is currently soliciting manuscripts for publication.

The series editors are Tsolin Nalbantian and Nira Wickramasinghe, with Fred Cooper, Engseng Ho, Ilham Khuri-Makdissi, Susan Pennybacker, Bhavani Raman, and Willem van Schendel on the editorial board.

Submission Guidelines:

We seek works that are both theorised and empirical, exposing both the destruction and potential of the modern age, from 1700 onwards. The series focuses on cultural and historical studies and crosscuts the disciplines of modern history, political science, sociology and cultural studies.

We invite scholars at any stage of their careers to share their book proposals and draft manuscripts with us on a subject within the scope of the series. We particularly welcome proposals based on rigorous and innovative interdisciplinary work.

The series will be principally comprised of monographs, but will also include high- quality edited volumes. Proposals based on substantially re-worked PhD theses are also welcome.

Proposals for monographs or edited volumes should kindly follow the LUP Book Proposal Form ( and should also include the envisaged table of contents or overview of the volume and abstracts of the proposed chapters or articles.

For questions or to submit a proposal, contact our publisher Saskia Gieling ( or the series editors Nira Wickramasinghe ( and/or Tsolin Nalbantian (
