Hello and welcome to the first History Newsletter of 2021!

Despite the challenges of the last year, our authors have submitted some brilliant manuscripts and we have been encouraged by the fantastic range of proposals we have received. World events continue to highlight the importance of history as a discipline and as an editorial team we are passionate about continuing to publish high quality research and teaching materials. We hope you enjoy browsing some of our latest activities and please get in touch with us if you’d like to discuss a new project idea.

Series spotlight

Routledge is delighted to announce a brand new series: Lives of Royal Women, edited by Elena Woodacre and Louise Wilkinson. Proposals welcome!

The Body in the City investigates the complex, diverse, and multi-layered realities and understandings of ‘the body’ in medieval and early modern societies.
