Knowledge Hegemonies in the Early Modern World: Sources and Interpretations

A new book series on the early modern cultural politics of science seeks outstanding proposals.

Deadline: 15 April 2021

Proposals should include an abstract, table of contents, chapter summary, state-of-the-art, as well as an assessment of the impact on the field, and a brief explanation of how the material fits within the themes of the series.

Knowledge Hegemonies fosters a multi-lingual academic culture. In addition to English, books can be submitted and published in Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Please note that the list of possible languages depends on the composition of our editorial board and may change in the future. 

Knowledge Hegemonies will cover all publication costs and make open-access books available online and as print-on-demand copies.

Thematic Overview of the Series
This series is devoted to the social-cultural study of early modern knowledge cultures (ca. 1450-1750). It promotes studies that highlight the importance of science as a collective praxis, understood as a contested field informed by political, philosophical and confessional struggles for cultural hegemony, and in connection with social and economic interests. To what extent did political antagonisms, ideological struggles, and religious tensions hinder scientific development or underpin it? How did the
modern construction of identity along confessional, linguistic, and political lines affect the ethos and epistemic values of the sciences? The goal of our series is to publish source-based studies that combine the online presentation of historical sources with accompanying critical monographs.
