In 2018 the CSMBR has started a collaboration with the publisher Palgrave-MacMillan for a new series of books on the history of medicine titled Palgrave Studies in Medieval and Early Modern Medicine (PSMEMM). The new series provides a high-quality outlet for academic monographs and edited collections devoted to the history of medicine in the period 500-1800 AD.
The series pays particular attention to
intellectual historyand history of ideas,
history and philosophy of science,
history of medicine and technology,
history of medical institutions,
connections betweenmedical humanities and the arts (including music and architecture).
Further topics include:
history of medical traditions and practices,
philosophy of medicine,
medical correspondences and archival documents.
The series also welcomes proposals for commented translations (if particularly relevant, even on a large scale) of medical and scientific texts into English (examples of original languages accepted are Greek, Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Syriac, as well as European vernaculars).
The emphasis of the series lies on European and Western cultures widely construed, including interactions with, and borrowings from, other cultures/traditions/practices around the Mediterranean, especially Arabic and Hebrew.
