Heritage and Memory Studies, Amsterdam University Press (AUP)
Rob van der Laarse (UvA) & Ihab Saloul (UvA)
This ground-breaking series examines the dynamics of heritage and memory studies from a transnational, interdisciplinary and integrated approach. Monographs or edited volumes critically interrogate the politics of heritage and memory, as well as the theoretical implications of landscapes and mass violence, nationalism and ethnicity, heritage preservation and conservation, archaeology and (dark) tourism, diaspora and postcolonial memory, the power of aesthetics and the art of absence and forgetting, and performative re-enactments in the present.
Palgrave Studies in Cultural Heritage and Conflict, Palgrave US
Ihab Saloul (UvA), Rob van de Laarse (UvA), Britt Baillie (Cambridge University)
This book series explores the relationship between cultural heritage and conflict. The key themes of the series are the heritage and memory of war and conflict, contested heritage, and competing memories. The series editors seek books that analyze the dynamics of the past from the perspective of tangible and intangible remnants, spaces, and traces as well as heritage appropriations and restitutions, significations, musealizations, medializations as well as mediatizations in the present. Books in the series should address topics such as the politics of heritage and conflict, identity and trauma, mourning and reconciliation, nationalism and ethnicity, diaspora and intergenerational memories, painful heritage and terrorscapes, as well as the mediated re-enactments of conflicted pasts.
Library of the Written Word - The Industrial World, Brill Publishers
Lisa Kuitert (UvA)
The Industrial World is a peer-reviewed series that explores the ways that industrialization has shaped the production, distribution, and reception of books from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present day. This period is marked by the introduction of new technologies – not just of manufacture, but also of transportation and communication – that have profoundly altered the ways that books are created and circulated and that have, among other things, enabled the rise of international publishing conglomerates that can reach a global mass market. The series investigates every aspect of the book in the industrial world, from the reorganization of the book and publishing trades to the present impact of digital texts and the internet.
Routledge Studies in Later European Historical Archaeology, Routledge
James Symonds (UvA) & Gavin Lucas (University of Iceland)
This book series has the primary aim of promoting and stimulating the publication of research on archaeological material with its focus on the period c. 1500-1900 and from a specifically European perspective. This is a field of research which the series editors believe needs far more exposure in monograph form and one that the series aims to facilitate. If you have any book ideas you want to explore with the editors, please get in touch, with either or both of them: Prof. James Symonds and Prof. Gavin Lucas.
