Legenda book series
Visual Culture reflects the dynamism of a vibrant and fast-growing field which showcases the interdisciplinary nature of research in Modern Languages and the Humanities more generally. The series publishes cutting-edge monographs and edited collections on any aspect of global visual culture from the Middle Ages to the present day. In line with this expansive scope, areas of interest include photography, advertising, memorials, urban visual studies, installation and performance art, commercial art and design, museum and gallery studies, and text-image relations in a variety of media and contexts.
Books in the Visual Culture series are fully illustrated. As with all Legenda publications, they are initially published in hardcover and ebook editions, and subsequently as affordable paperbacks.
Proposals. Proposals should be submitted in the first instance to the General Editor, Carolin Duttlinger. Visual Cultures publishes research monographs and edited collections on any aspect of visual culture except (a) art history in the strict methodological sense, for which there are numerous publication opportunities with university presses, and (b) film studies, which has its own Legenda series, Moving Image. Subjects may include but are not limited to: photography, advertising, memorials, urban visual studies, installation and performance art, commercial art and design, museum and gallery studies, and text-image relations in a variety of media and contexts.
Review copies. Journals wishing to review books in this series should please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request copies.
Subvention. Authors in this series are not required to raise any subsidy or subvention, but are responsible in the usual way if any rights fees arise from illustrations or other copyright material included.
However, as the publisher of Legenda, MHRA is conscious that rights fees are an increasing burden for scholarly authors in visual culture, and particularly for early career researchers who may have less access to institutional funding. The MHRA trustees have therefore agreed, for a period of three years in the first instance, to look sympathetically at applications for grants of up to £500 per title to reimburse authors in the Visual Culture series in cases where more direct sources of funding (from research grants or departmental allowances) have been unavailable.
History. The series was established by Carolin Duttlinger in 2021.
