AVISTA is proud to announce our book series with Brill!

AVISTA Studies in the History of Medieval Technology, Science and Art.

Editor-in-Chief: Jennifer M. Feltman, University of Alabama

Editorial Board: Robert Bork, University of Iowa; George Brooks, Valencia College; Ellen Shortell, Massachusetts College of Art & Design; Sarah Thompson, Rochester Institute of Technology

AVISTA Studies in the History of Medieval Technology, Science and Art is a wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary book series publishing scholarly work on a variety of aspects of technology, science, art, and architecture of the Middle Ages. The series publishes works that emphasize the interrelationship of these fields. In doing so, the series aims to promote a cross-disciplinary perspective, and submissions are encouraged from any field of study, including (but not limited to) history, art and architectural history, manuscript studies, literature, and history of science. Studies with a closer focus or works examining wider contexts and global developments are equally welcomed. The series publishes monographs, thematic edited volumes, and, on occasion, text editions and translations. All proposals from early career projects to those from established scholars are invited.

The themes of submission may include (but are not limited to): medieval architectural history, construction technologies, material culture, the use of new technologies in the study of medieval art and architecture, scientific knowledge in the Middle Ages, travel, craft, and the historiography of these topics.

Call for Manuscripts

Submissions should be in English and should consist of 80,000-200,000 words. Generous provision for black-and-white and full color images is made; books are hardcover and printed in full color with no subvention required for image printing costs. All volumes will be subject to Brill’s standard peer review procedure.

For further information on how to submit a proposal or manuscript, please contact the series editor, Jennifer M. Feltman (, or the publisher, Kate Hammond (
