Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce it will publish a new journal, Global Nineteenth-Century Studies, from 2022.
Global Nineteenth-Century Studies is a forum for scholars from a wide array of disciplines who share an interest in the world’s connectedness between 1780 and 1914. It will publish pioneering essays of transnational, comparative, transimperial, and transatlantic significance while also serving as a venue to debate these terms and their corresponding methodologies and epistemologies.
Investigating material culture forms, visual and literary texts, ideas, and sentient beings that transcend national boundaries, essays in GNCS are asked to engage critically with mobility and migration, imperialism and colonialism, and production and distribution, as well as travel, technologies, and varieties of exchange.
The journal welcomes submissions that examine Britain and the United States in their imperial and international contexts as well as work that decenters these nations as their focus of inquiry by exploring developments within and among other imperial entities, regions, and nations.
The journal will be published twice a year, in May and November.
Clare Hooper, Head of Journals at Liverpool University Press said: “we are delighted to be publishing the journal Global Nineteenth-Century Studies. The journal is an extremely valuable interdisciplinary resource for all scholars interested in the study of international perspectives on the period”.
Kevin A. Morrison, Editor of GNCS said: “Liverpool University Press has for many years been in the vanguard of publishing transnational, international, or global historical studies. A journal that is being launched out of a desire to rethink the long nineteenth century, unconstrained by the imperial frames that characterized the era’s own approaches to globalization, could not have a better partner.”
