Humanities and Other Disciplines – Palgrave supports Interdisciplinarity

We have long recognized that 'no discipline is an island' and have a history of publishing in areas where interdisciplinary approaches are the norm. We benefit from being part of the wider Palgrave scholarly publishing team with established lists within the Social Sciences, we cross-promote humanities titles which have reach outside a specific discipline in our catalogues and newsletters and at conferences.

Our support of advances made by scholarship at the intersection of different disciplines is reflected in our publishing programs. From publishing titles like Geoparsing Early Modern English Drama (Matei-Chesnoiu, 2015), which uses the geoparsing technique from computer science to help visualize symmetry and paradox in theatrical performances, to The Palgrave Handbook of Posthumanism in Film and Television, which sits on the intersection between film and philosophy, we are proud to break boundaries and have a focus on publishing in interdisciplinary areas.

Not only do our titles cross boundaries, our series also have an interdisciplinary approach. Series of titles on topics such as emotions, the environment, gender, and science are published with different disciplinary emphases – for example, looking at cross-disciplinary work between the humanities and science, we have established series of titles including the History of Science and Technology, Literature, Science and Medicine, and Performance and Technology.

Our interdisciplinary series include:
