The series publishes interdisciplinary scholarship about history of East Central Europe. It aims to contribute to a broader understanding of the social, economic and political culture of East Central Europe as an integral part of Europe and a significant contributor to the human story globally. By highlighting the ‘specificity’ of East Central Europe this series promotes East Central Europe not only as a geographic or cultural concept but also as a method of historical analysis.

This series challenges the application of the concepts of periphery and frontier, and cultural transmission in medieval studies and aims at integrating East Central European history into the study of the medieval world globally. The series also addresses the fundamental issue of the prevalent perception that the people and cultures of the European periphery were radically separate and mutually hostile; often paradoxical connections existed between different peoples over time and this project explores the questions regarding space and identity in the European periphery. This series aims to demonstrate that the continued experiences of the ‘making of Europe’ imply that thinking about human existence in terms of ‘us and them’ is at once historically specific and generic; much can be learned about cultural conceptions of order and disorder, self and community, belonging and alienation from detailed cultural histories of response to cultural transmission.
