New Book Series at Manchester University Press: Women on the Move


Call for Proposals

Manchester University Press and the Series Editors invite proposals for their new transdisciplinary book series Women on the Move. The series focuses on unveiling the presence and multiplicity of experiences of women in migration processes. It bridges the gap between historical and contemporary approaches, and aims to publish books on women’s migration from a wide variety of perspectives, time frames and geographical outlooks, with a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches. The books published in the series seek to deconstruct the sexist stereotypes that have marked the history of migration by revealing both women migrants’ agency and resources, as well as their vulnerabilities and the challenges faced in past and present experiences of migration. The interplay between gender and migration at the core of the series invites authors to develop multifactorial perspectives of women’s migration and to disclose how gender shapes migration and how migration shapes gender.

The series seeks proposals for monographs and edited volumes that are:

  • From a broad range of fields in the humanities and social sciences, including: History, Politics, Philosophy, Anthropology and Ethnology, Sociology, Law, Geography, and Art History.
  • Accessibly written for an international, academic audience.
  • From diverse perspectives, under-represented scholars, and established and early-career researchers.
  • Between 80-100,000 words
