Centre book series with Edinburgh University Press to launch

Lairg Map

The Centre is delighted to announce that it is launching a new interdisciplinary books series with Edinburgh University Press, Scotland’s Land. Invitations are open for proposals for this new and innovative book series.

This book series will present the latest scholarly work to academic and public readers on Scotland’s land issues. Predominantly focusing on the history of Scotland’s economic, political, social and cultural relationships to land, landscape, country houses, and landed estates it also brings in cutting edge, interdisciplinary approaches to explore new methodologies and perspectives around this contentious but stimulating issue.

This series brings together and publishes the best work on land issues across a wide range of disciplines for a diverse set of audiences. As such, the scope of the series must necessarily be relatively broad, not least because of the way in which ‘land’ acts as an umbrella term for a wide range of social, economic, historical and cultural markers. As an interdisciplinary series, the scope of the disciplines represented is also broad, and encompasses a wide range of approaches. These include history, law, economics and economic history, philosophy, environment/landscape studies, and human/cultural geography. The core geographical focus is Scotland, but some transnational perspectives will be welcomed (principally British and Irish).

Proposals and queries should be sent in the first instance to the series editor, Dr Annie Tindley, University of Dundee; Senior Lecturer in History, School of Humanities, A.Tindley@dundee.ac.uk
