Cornell Series on Land: New perspectives in Territory, Development, and Environment
Land is fundamental. Societies are shaped by the control of, access to, and use of land. Books in this new Cornell Series on Land will exhibit a concern with the dynamics of life on the land, particularly as expressed though relations of environment, territoriality, and development. The key premise is that all three are intimately connected.
This book series will explore the variety of ways in which the multifaceted nature and dynamics of life on the land have shaped development, territoriality, and the environment in particular places and historical moments. We seek to publish work that crosses regional, disciplinary, methodological, and theoretical boundaries. We are looking for authors addressing questions inflected by class, gender, race, and generation, as well as spatial and environmental transformations encompassing and extending beyond those inspired by work on agrarian questions that has motivated much scholarly work over the past century.
We welcome submissions addressing all historical periods and employing a variety of regional, interdisciplinary, and theoretical foci and approaches. The full series description can be downloaded here (PDF).
