How we encourage interdisciplinarity
At Palgrave 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 were one of the first publishers to support the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of International Political Economy in the 1980s and have a focus on publishing on interdisciplinary areas such as Gender Studies, Development Studies and Migration Studies. Further we continually strive to break boundaries in publishing work and series that bring cross-disciplinary approaches and perspectives together in new ways.
