Sent: 28 January 2014 00:40 Dear colleagues, I have a question for the collective wisdom and I welcome any comments you may have. For the past few months, I've been corresponding informally with an editor at Amsterdam University Press and they have expressed interest in starting a new series on the medieval Islamicate world. They would like to start with a monograph/book series and want to keep the scope as open as possible. Depending on the project, they seem amenable to including translations as well as specific topics areas, such as slavery or gender. The series would be through ARC-Humanities (similar to Medieval Globe), peer-reviewed and potentially with Open Access. There is a Publications Committee in place and the project has been approved by the Executive board. At this point, I am trying to ascertain what interest there may be or if such a series might interfere with other projects already underway. If it is of interest, what projects could we contribute to begin? In corresponding with John Curry, who recently asked a related question regarding our need for source materials, as well as discussing options with other colleagues, it seems one potential use for the series is to increase and develop more materials we can use in our teaching. I look forward to your thoughts, and if you have any suggestions and/or ideas for projects, please contact me off-list at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
