I.B.Tauris is seeking book proposals for a new academic book series: I.B.Tauris Studies in Medieval and Early Modern Persian Literature.
This series provides a forum for cutting-edge scholarship from established and emerging scholars in the field of Persian literary studies. It publishes monographs that challenge received understandings of the primary source material and offer new ways of approaching both familiar and obscure texts. The series editor and advisory board encourage submissions from authors who adopt a comparative approach to the study of Persian literature that spans genres, periods, regions, and/or languages, however, studies of distinct periods and individual poets (or clusters of poets) will also be considered. The temporal scope of the series is the first millennium of literary production in New Persian, circa 850-1850, encompassing the medieval (or pre-modern) and the early modern periods. The geographical range is the full expanse of the Persianate world, from Anatolia and the Caucasus in the west, through Iran and Afghanistan, to Central and South Asia in the east. Read more
