Brill Announces Collaboration with the Harvard Semitic Museum on Three Book Series

Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – 27 September 2017

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, announces their collaboration with the Harvard Semitic Museum on three book series.

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, announces their collaboration with the Harvard Semitic Museum on three book series. The three book series, Harvard Semitic Studies, Harvard Semitic Monographs, and Studies in the Archaeology and History of the Levant, will be published by Brill in close collaboration with the Harvard Semitic Museum. Through these series the Museum has published archaeological, historical, philological, and cultural studies of the Near East, many of which present the research of the department faculty and their students. This tradition will continue and, additionally, all the existing volumes, some dating as far back as 1912, will be digitized and made available both online and in print.

Editor-in-Chief of the series, Michael Coogan (Harvard University) said, “The Harvard Semitic Museum is delighted to be collaborating with Brill in the publication of our ongoing series Harvard Semitic Monographs, Harvard Semitic Studies, and Studies in the Archaeology and History of the Levant. We expect that the collaboration with Brill will increase our international reach, enable us to produce works with greater frequency than in recent years, and reduce costs and ease production details for our authors. We have revitalized our editorial board, and look forward to many good books in the years ahead!”

“These three series only serve to strengthen our existing program in Ancient Near Eastern Studies,” added Katelyn Chin, Acquisitions Editor responsible for the series. “Their rich history, combined with Brill’s, will make for a strong base to revitalize and enhance three already well-respected series. We look forward to working with the Harvard Semitic Museum and are happy to have these works join the Harvard Egyptological Studies series, which was launched two years ago.”

For general information about the series or to submit a proposal for consideration, please contact Katelyn Chin, Acquisitions Editor at Brill: [email protected].
