We support scholars at all stages of their careers
A new group of titles on our list addresses issues of concern and interest for scholars working within the Humanities. These include works of widespread use to the community – in How to Build a Life in the Humanities, (Semenza and Sullivan, 2015) the authors look at the personal aspects of daily lives in the humanities; in The Humanities, Higher Education and Academic Freedom (Bérubé and Ruth 2015) the authors give a passionate defense of contemporary work in the humanities, and, beyond that, of the university system that makes such work possible.
We recognize the need from the academic community for flexible publishing models, and we have given humanities scholars at all stages of their careers the opportunity to publish their original research at its natural length. We publish monographs, edited collections, and short form titles in our Palgrave Pivot format, across all subjects.
We pride ourselves on supporting the work of Early Career Researchers who we recognize as future leaders in their disciplines and the lifeblood of the fields in which we publish. As well as publishing the very best new research, our Editors regularly give presentations on campus to doctoral students and ECRs on the publishing process. We have established links with Centres such as The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), and the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities (SGSAH) and have held successful Editor Surgeries, allowing those at an early stage of their careers the opportunity to ask detailed questions about the publishing process, and to discuss their work with the publisher.
We provide a range of resources to support those looking to develop an academic career.
