Knowledge and Communication in the Enlightenment World

This series from Boydell and Brewer considers the global history of knowledge transmission between the mid seventeenth and the mid nineteenth centuries. It aims to transform our understanding of the social history of knowledge in this critical period of political revolution, technological change and global encounter by publishing ground-breaking transnational studies of script, print, material culture, and communication networks. 

Book history and the history of print culture more generally have moved in recent years from the periphery to the mainstream of early modern and eighteenth century research in history and literary studies.  This series will contribute to that trend by encouraging contributions from historians of science, ideas, religion and empire, as well as scholars working at the interface between literature and popular culture and in the emerging world of digital humanities. It will particularly encourage transnational work, reflecting the exciting range of trans-European and global research currently being done on the basis of newly accessible archives and libraries and thus providing a fresh and comparative perspective on the social history of knowledge.
