The Seven Provinces series (Dutch language)

This Dutch language series is published in collaboration with publisher Verloren. The Seven Provinces series was established in 1990 to publish studies on the history of the early modern Netherlands. It was designed as an interdisciplinary series. Some publications aim to present a bigger issue in a compact format to a broader audience, while others study a particular case, text or episode in depth. The series includes texts by both renowned scientists and starting authors. Each publication is about 30,000 words long and falls somewhere between a scientific article and a large monograph. They contain an average of 30 illustrations. One or two titles are published every year. More information about the series can be found on the publisher's website, Uitgeverij Verloren. A complete list of published titles can be found under the tab ‘Inhoudsopgave’.

Intersections: Yearbook for Early Modern Studies

This series of publications brings together new material on well considered themes within the broad area of Early Modern Studies. Contributions may come from any of the disciplines within the humanities: history; art history; literary history; book history; church history; social history; history of the humanities, theatre, cultural life and institutions. Each yearbook addresses a single theme and articles are selected for the freshness of their approach and for the extent to which they elucidate aspects of the theme of the volume. The themes are carefully selected on the basis of a number of criteria, the most important of which are that they should address issues about which there is a lively and ongoing debate within the international community of scholars and that they should be of interest to a variety of disciplines. Although it is to be expected that in each volume a fair amount of attention will be paid to the Low Countries, it is a matter of editorial policy that the theme of each yearbook will be approached with an eye to its European dimension.

The mission of Thamyris/Intersecting is to rigorously bring into encounter the crucial insights of black and ethnic studies, gender studies, and queer studies, and facilitate dialogue and confrontations between them. Thamyris/Intersecting shares this focus with Thamyris: Mythmaking from Past to Present, the socially committed international journal which was established in 1994, and from which Thamyris/Intersecting evolved. The sharpness and urgency of these issues is the point of departure, and the title reflects the decision to work on the cutting edge.
