Alternative Histories: Narratives from the Middle East and Mediterranean
Post Date May 10, 2016
Call for Submissions
Series Editor(s): Sargon Donabed
Explores the narratives of minority communities and individuals in the Middle East
This new series will provide a forum for exchange on a myriad of alternative histories of minorities in the Near and Middle East and the Mediterranean, and those of Middle Eastern or Mediterranean heritage. It will highlight thematic issues relating to various native peoples and their narratives and – with particular contemporary relevance – explore encounters with the notion of ‘other’ within various societies. Often moving beyond the conventional state-centred and dominant monolithic approach, or reinterpreting previously accepted stories, books in the series will examine and explain themes from inter-communal relations, environment, health and society, and will explore ethnic, communal, racial, linguistic and religious developments that go beyond geopolitical compositions.
Building on the foundations of scholarship within an interdisciplinary framework, this series will span the continuum of Near Eastern and Mediterranean traditions extending from the fourth millennium B.C. to the present – bridging previous fields which originally had little connection with each other. The aim is to enhance perspectives by applying various methodological approaches to dilemmas that have in the past been treated as the exclusive concern of a single given discipline.
- Creates a forum for minorities/indigenous communities to engage with the ‘accepted past and present’ and to challenge previously accepted truths
- The first series to focus on indigenous and minority related narratives from the understudied, and often marginal perspective
- Covers cultural, linguistic, ethnic, gendered, political, numerical, and economic communities in the Near and Middle East, the Mediterranean, and its extended environs
- Engages with all periods of history from the ancient world to the present day, especially in terms of continuity of culture, cultural heritage, and heritage preservation
- Communities studied may include Ahwazis, Alawites, Alevis, Armenians, Assyrians, Christians, Copts, Druze, Jews, Mandaens, Maronites, Pontian/ Anatolian Greeks, Samaritans, Shabbaks, Yezidis and Zoroastrians among others
If you have a proposal suitable for this series we’d love to hear from you. Find out how to submit your proposal.

AWEJ has already started sending complementary copies of these selected published theses to some e-libraries of international leading universities around the world as a way of sharing the work of colleagues with the international community.
