Call for Proposals: "The Digital Nineteenth Century" series announced by Palgrave Pivot and NINES

PalgraveMacmillan has announced a new series on “The Digital Nineteenth Century” within their increasingly popular mini-book publication series: Palgrave Pivot.

Palgrave Pivot was launched in 2012 and the works are usually between 25,000 and 50,000 words in length. Ordinarily they are turned around–after a peer review process–in under 12 weeks.

With the recent announcement they are teaming up with NINES and its director, Andrew M. Stauffer, to create a new series looking at nineteenth century research and its relationship with the digital humanities.

A fuller explanation from the NINES website reads:

The proposed Palgrave Pivot series, “The Digital Nineteenth Century,” will publish short-form monographs (30 – 50,000 words) on topics at the intersection of nineteenth-century studies and the digital humanities. Partnering with the NINES Center (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-Century Electronic Scholarship) at the University of Virginia, this series will be retrospective and prospective, involving not only explications of digital projects and theoretical considerations of methods, results, rhetorics, and audiences, but also projections that chart a course for future work. The series will also include free-standing titles for scholars throughout the world not tied to a specific digital project, but rather synoptic studies of a particular method, approach, or thematic in digital nineteenth-century studies. The series aims to provide a growing archival record of the digital nineteenth century across the years.

If you’re interested in potentially proposing a book for the series, contact Andrew M. Stauffer (University of Virginia) at ams4k@virginia.edu. Stauffer–who is the NINES Director–will serve as the series’ editor.
