This series contributes to our growing understanding of the connectedness of the world during a period in history when an unprecedented number of people—Europeans, Africans, Asians—made transoceanic or other long distance journeys. It explores topics that highlight the cultural impact of the movement of people, animals, and objects at a global scale. The series editors welcome proposals for monographs and collections of essays in English from literary critics, art historians, and cultural historians that address the changes and cross-fertilizations of cultural practices of specific societies. General topics may concern, among other possibilities: cultural confluences, objects in motion, appropriations of material cultures, cross-cultural exoticization, transcultural identities, religious practices, translations and mistranslations, cultural impacts of trade, discourses of dislocation, globalism in literary/visual arts, and cultural histories of lesser studied regions (such as the Philippines, Macau, African societies).
For questions or to submit a proposal, please contact the Acquisitions Editor, Erika Gaffney (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit the press website: www.mip-archumanitiespress.org/series/arc/ch/
