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.
