Fabrizio Nevola joins Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe as Series Editor

Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce that Professor Fabrizio Nevola is joining Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe as a series editor.

Fabrizio Nevola is Professor of Art History and Visual Culture at the University of Exeter, and Director of the Centre for Early Modern Studies at Exeter. He has held research fellowships at the University of Warwick, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Medici Archive Project, and Harvard University’s Villa I Tatti in Florence. His book, Siena: Constructing the Renaissance City was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects, Sir Nikolaus Pevsner International Book Award for Architecture. Nevola’s recent work includes Hidden Florence, a digital humanities collaboration with industry-leaders in GPS-triggered city audio tours that created a mobile phone App guide to Renaissance Florence (published 2014; updates 2016).

Fellow series editors Professor Yolanda Plumley, Professor Oliver Creighton and Professor Anthony Musson said ‘Fabrizio is a leading international specialist on late medieval and Early Modern art history and visual culture, and has published extensively on urban spaces, palaces and households in Italy and on the ritual use of public spaces, and urban identity, and is currently researching city streets as social spaces and urban iconography. He will bring invaluable experience and expertise to the series, especially as we develop major strands in the areas of material culture and the environment, and on the arts and society.’

Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe explores the history of societies, culture, the arts and the environment in the Middle Ages. Complementing the renowned Exeter Medieval Texts and Studies series, it has a chronological range of c. 500-1500, a broad European focus and a multi-disciplinary perspective. It includes three major strands:

  • Material culture, including the applied arts and architecture
  • Music, sound studies, art history and visual culture
  • Archaeology and landscape history, including the urban environment

New Series Editor for Liverpool Latin American Studies

Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce the appointment of Matthew Brown as the new Series Editor for Liverpool Latin American Studies.

Matthew Brown is Professor in Latin American History at the University of Bristol. He is the author of several books on aspects of Latin American history, and is the Principal Investigator on two current Arts and Humanities Research Council grants, ‘Tying Quipu’s Key Knots’ which carries on the research of the Quipu Project (www.quipu-project.com) an interactive multimedia documentary about the experience of forced sterilizations in 1990s Peru, and ‘Peace Festival: Creative methodologies for unearthing hidden war stories’ which seeks to bring into dialogue the experiences of creative projects engaging with histories of violence and the prospects for peace in Colombia and Peru.

Matthew commented, ‘I am delighted and honoured to be taking over from such a distinguished predecessor as Series Editor as Professor Catherine Davies, and continuing to build the reputation of the series begun by Professor John Fisher. I published my first book, Adventuring through Spanish Colonies, in this series back in 2006, and am very pleased to be coming back! The series has a well-earned reputation for serious, engaged scholarship in Latin American Studies. It has a brilliant back catalogue featuring work by major scholars such as John Fisher, Catherine Davies, Adrian Pearce, Caroline Williams and Michael Goebel, and great new books from emerging voices such as Juan Luis Ossa.’

Chloe Johnson, Commissioning Editor for the series, said, ‘Beginning with the publication of his first book by LUP, Matthew Brown has emerged as a dynamic and internationally regarded scholar in Latin American Studies. He is an obvious choice to edit one of the leading series in its field.’

We will be looking to continue this well-earned reputation, and to publish more groundbreaking research in historical, political and cultural studies of Latin America. Do get in touch if you have an idea for a proposal.
