Humanities Original Reference
I am Senior Commissioning Editor with responsibility for Ashgate
original reference publishing across the Humanities - History,
Visual Studies, Literary Studies, Music and Religious Studies. My
main focus from 2015 is to commission new Ashgate Research Companions, but I am also
interested to hear ideas for other original reference works that
would enhance scholarship in your field.
From 2005 to 2014 I was part of the History team, and alongside
John Smedley and Thomas Gray I commissioned new titles for the
largest single list at Ashgate. I have worked with historians from
a broad range of disciplines, from medieval to modern history, and
from first-time to established authors. Ashgate Research Companions
have gained a reputation as core titles in library subject
collections and have been lauded for their authoritative content,
up-to-date information, accessibility and relevance. I look forward
to exploring with scholars what opportunities are available for
publishing cutting-edge companions that set the benchmark for new
research in their subject.
If you have an idea for a research companion or another original
reference work, please contact me.
