Call for Submissions, Book Series: Cultures of Play, 1300–1700

Monday, September 17, 2018   (0 Comments)

Series editors: Bret Rothstein (Chair), Indiana University, Bloomington; Alessandro Arcangeli, Università di Verona; and Christina Normore, Northwestern University

Publisher: Amsterdam University Press

'Cultures of Play, 1300–1700' provides a forum for investigating the full scope of medieval and early modern play, from toys and games to dramatic performances, from etiquette manuals and literary texts to bulls and tractates, from jousting to duels, and from education to early scientific investigation. Inspired by the foundational work of Johan Huizinga as well as later contributions by Roger Caillois, Eugen Fink, and Bernard Suits, this series publishes monographs and essay collections that address the ludic aspects of premodern life.

The accent of this series falls on cultural practices that have thus far eluded traditional disciplinary models. Our goal is to make legible modes of thought and action that until recently seemed untraceable, thereby shaping the growing scholarly discourses on playfulness both past and present.
