​​Palgrave Macmillan's Campaign for the Humanities

We are keen to maintain this page as a useful and up to date hub for the academic community, as well as providing a space for our partner societies and associations to share their events and current research in the Humanities.

As one of the largest supporters of scholarly humanities research, we already have a growing list of titles covering topics and challenges relevant to the humanities as a whole, including Humanities in the Twenty-First Century and The World Humanities Report (published in 2014, and available Open Access), and we want to work together to help tackle these challenges and highlight the importance the humanities has on our society.

Please let us know if you'd like to include information about your work in the Humanities on our Hub, or if you would like to work together and get involved in our wider initiative - join the conversation #HumanitiesCampaign

Explore our Early Career Researcher Hub

We pride ourselves on supporting the work of Early Career Researchers who we recognise as future leaders in their disciplines and the lifeblood of the fields in which we publish. Editors regularly give presentations on campus to doctoral students and Early Career Researchers on the publishing process and we have collected a range of resources to support those looking to develop an academic career. Collected in our new guide is advice from our editors and a number of our authors, with information on how to turn a dissertation into a monograph, guidelines for completing a book proposal and more.

Please visit our Early Career Researcher Hub to find out more and download the guide. Please do pass this on to colleagues and students who may find this useful.
