HomeBook Series

Starting from 2018 the CSMBR has started a collaboration with Palgrave-MacMillan for a new series of books on the history of medicine. Palgrave Studies in Medieval and Early Modern Medicine provides a high-quality outlet for academic monographs and edited collections devoted to the history of medicine in the period 1100-1800. The series pays particular attention to intellectual history and history of ideas, including the history and philosophy of sciencehistory of medicine and technologyhistory of medical institutionsmedical biographies as well as mutual bearings between medical humanities and the arts (including music and architecture). Further topics include history of medical traditions and practicesphilosophy of medicine and publications of medical correspondences and archival documents

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. 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).

Starting from 2020, will host a section with books from young authors selected under the international scheme Santorio Award for Excellence in Research.

For information about the series and possibility to publish within it please contact psmemm@fondazionecomel.org.
