Prof. Dr. Maria Rentetzi from our member, the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, edits a new book series on the historical entanglements of science and diplomacy at Brepols.

This series seeks to place the relation among science, technology and diplomacy within a historical perspective. Works in the series may focus on the complexities of the tangled relationship between two intrinsically valued practices, the scientific and the diplomatic. Particular attention is given to the intertwined roles of epistemic and diplomatic aspects of scientific work in the period especially after the second World War, though this does not exclude earlier aspects of science and technology diplomacy. The multifaceted historical relation between science and diplomacy extends across disciplinary, institutional, and geopolitical confines and as such requires a highly interdisciplinary approach. The series adopts a global perspective on science diplomacy and welcomes proposals for monographs and collective volumes with strong historical and epistemological elements.

Submissions should be sent to the series’ Publishing Manager Alexander Sterkens:

Peer review method: All volumes in this series are evaluated by the series editor and two additional referees who have been commissioned by virtue of their specialism in the appropriate field.
