All’antica: Early Modern Perspectives of the Antique
Series editors Cammy Brothers (Northeastern University) and Kathleen Christian (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin)
The invention of a real or imagined antique past, and creative responses to the material remains of ancient ruins and works of art are defining elements of the art, architecture and literature of Europe, the Mediterranean basin, Central and South Asia, and other parts of the world in the Early Modern period.
In 2023 Harvey Miller Press, an imprint of Brepols, is launching an English-language series co-edited by Cammy Brothers and Kathleen Christian that seeks to build and expand upon these areas of research. Many new approaches have opened up in recent decades, for example: the study of fictive notions of the ‘antique’, the intersection of the visual arts and other disciplines, comparative and cross-cultural approaches, and concepts of the ancient past in geographies beyond Europe. The series aims to reflect the current breadth of research, considering questions such as, what are the boundaries between documentation and invention in the reception of the antique? What strategies did artists, architects and others adopt to reconstruct, reinvent and interpret ancient remains?
With the aim of advancing the state of research, the series offers a venue for outstanding monographs or collected essays on the Early Modern reception and invention of antiquity, including work inspired by The Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance.
Books published in the series can include translations into English of work published elsewhere.
Prospective contributors are invited to send a prospectus of maximum 10 pages by email to: c [dot] brothers [at] northeastern [dot] edu and kathleen [dot] christian [at] hu-berlin [dot] de. The prospectus should include an outline of the volume’s content, a discussion of the current state of research on the topic, and a short summary of the potential audience.
All volumes in this series are evaluated by an Editorial Board, strictly on academic grounds, based on reports prepared by referees who have been commissioned by virtue of their specialism in the appropriate field. The Board ensures that the screening is done independently and without conflicts of interest. The definitive texts supplied by authors are also subject to review by the Board before being approved for publication.
