From October 2020, a new editorial collective will take over the EASA book series from the previous editor Aleksandar Boskovic, who successfully curated the series for two terms. Since its establishment in 1992, the book series has been showcasing the work produced by members of the Association. The series has been published by Berghahn Books since 2003 and includes both edited collections and monographs. Annika Lems, Sabine Strasser and Jelena Tošić want to continue expanding the book series’ key role in fostering and showcasing cutting-edge work.
- The new editors are interested in proposals that deal with important social and political issues and don’t shy away from experimenting with new approaches to shed light on challenging questions.
- The Book Series continues to promote different theoretical, geographical and empirical perspectives.
- The editorial collective strives for diversity – both in terms of the representation of thematical, epistemological and regional angles as well as the authors represented in the book series.
- The books they envisage for the series have a strong ethnographic basis and are written vividly.
The editors encourage both senior and junior scholars to contact them to discuss their ideas for book projects and gain advice on how to put forward a book proposal via bookseries(at)easaonline.org.
Authors are kindly asked to download and fill in a New Book Outline Form (NBO Form) from Berghahn. Proposals should include an extended discussion of the work as a whole, which identifies the projected work’s topic and significance, its analytical or theoretical orientation and its empirical content. Ideally this would mean a draft of the Introduction. In addition, they should have an abstract (about 300 words) of each chapter (for monographs) or contribution (for edited volumes). After reviewing this material, the Series Editor will indicate next steps.
The EASA book series publishes works in English that address worthwhile questions in a cogent, persuasive and fluent way. Manuscripts must not be under consideration by any other publisher.
