Call: Cambridge Elements on Global Development Studies

Cambridge University Press has recently launched the Elements on Global Development Studies, a new short monograph series (20,000-30,000 words), that publishes ground-breaking, novel works that move beyond existing theories and methodologies of development to consider social change in real times and real spaces.

The series is essentially inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary in nature as reflected in the theories, methodologies, and empirical studies it employs by examining processes of socio-political, environmental, economic, and cultural change. Geographically speaking, the series is global in scope, welcoming studies on developing societies, emerging economies, and ex-socialist countries in Asia, the Americas, Africa, Europe, and the Pacific.

The series publishes three major types of work: (1) cutting-edge and comprehensive scientific reviews; (2) thought-provoking essays setting future directions for research, theory, and methodology; and (3) theoretically rich and empirically grounded studies.

If you are interested in writing an Element (or guest-edit a Focus Track of more Elements), please contact the editor Prof. Peter Ho at For more information: Elements Global Development Studies Brochure.
