Open Access Monograph Series: Liverpool Studies in Ancient History

Liverpool Studies in Ancient History (LSAH) is a major new international series showcasing high quality research and representing the dynamism and vibrancy of the study of ancient history today. The series focuses on the history of the Greek and Roman worlds, particularly through the lens of politics, economy, culture and society. Volumes will be of interest and importance to an international readership, through their empirical research, interpretative approach and emphasis on what interaction between different types of evidence can tell us about the development of ancient societies.

LSAH volumes approach their subjects through a range of historical methods including historiography, epigraphy, papyrology, and where appropriate are archaeologically informed. Themes covered range from politics and socio-economic history, regional and environmental history, through to cultural history and religion. While certainly informed by literary texts, the focus of the series will be historical rather than narrowly literary or philological. The series will include single-author and edited volumes and is primarily for an academic audience.

The chronological range starts at c. 800 BC and ends at 400 AD, with some flexibility to expand outside these dates providing the core of the study falls within them. Geographically the series will cover the ancient Mediterranean and the surrounding territories reaching out into northern Europe, the Near East and North Africa, mapping the contours of the Greco-Roman world. A focus on specific regions will be complemented by the study of political and cultural interactions within and between communities.

The key themes of the series are defined as follows:

  • Politics
  • Socio-economic history
  • War, incorporating military campaigns, civil war and local conflict
  • Religion and society
  • Historical texts and historiography
  • Cultural studies including everyday ways of life, gender and identity
  • Regional studies

Digital humanities and Open Access: Liverpool University Press welcomes and encourages projects with a digital humanities aspect to them, and those with Open Access requirements.

Proposals are warmly invited for the series; please contact Clare Litt, or one of the series editors with a Proposal Submission Form.
