Looking at how factors such as religion, environment, social constraints, law, work, leisure, economics and medicine bear upon the human body, this series moves beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries within gender and sexuality studies and cultural history.

The series encourages a wide variety of work that considers the body, gender and sex in society and culture, from across the world and from the medieval period to the end of the twentieth century.

Marjorie Levine-Clark is Associate Professor of History and Associate Dean in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Colorado, Denver. Her research explores relationships among gender, health, work and social policy in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Britain. She has written a number of scholarly articles and chapters and two books, Beyond the Reproductive Body: The Politics of Women’s Health and Work in Early Victorian England (2004) and Unemployment, Welfare, and Masculine Citizenship (forthcoming).

We invite submissions from established scholars and first-time authors alike. Prospective authors should send a detailed proposal with a rationale, chapter outlines and at least two sample chapters alongside a brief author's biography and an anticipated submission date.

Proposals should be sent to: Marjorie Levine-Clark (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) and to Janka Romero (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )
