Studies in the Eighteenth Century

Studies in the Eighteenth Century is a new monograph series presenting the best current multidisciplinary research on the global eighteenth century. Published by Boydell and Brewer in association with the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies.

The eighteenth century was an age in which today’s disciplinary and topographical borders had not yet been quite fixed. Connoisseurship and science overlapped, belles lettres could convey the latest philosophical speculation or political controversy, and commercial and intellectual exchange spread through global networks. 

This major new series from Boydell and Brewer aims to bring into fruitful dialogue the different disciplines involved in all aspects of the study of the long eighteenth century (c.1660-1820). It will publish innovative volumes, singly or co-authored, on any topic in history, science, music, literature and the visual arts in any area of the world in the long eighteenth century. It will particularly encourage proposals that explore links among the disciplines, and which aim to develop new cross-disciplinary fields of enquiry.  Projects on the transnational or ‘global’ eighteenth century will be especially welcome.

The editors welcome proposals and preliminary enquiries from prospective authors.
