The Berkeley Series in British Studies aims to contribute to the renewal of British studies across a range of disciplines, emphasizing culture, ideology, empire, and transnationality. It focuses on revealing Britain’s modernity as a historically specific endeavor, probing its economy, society, politics, and culture within broad imperial and transnational frames. It invites accounts of Britain’s economic transformation, especially in relation to discourses and practices of comprehension, production, and exchange.
It welcomes studies of governance and politics, particularly concerning forms of statecraft and political mobilization. It encourages studies of society and its discontents, especially in the context of traditions of social thought and protest and their role in framing patterns of sociality, inequality, and resistance. And it supports studies of culture in these transformations, and of culture as a discrete realm with its own institutions, forms, and conventions.
Each book in the series will be available in a reasonably priced paperback and as a digital edition, We welcome research-based monographs, interpretive syntheses and interventions, and occasionally collections of essays.
