Pierides - Cambridge Scholars Publishing

This month, Cambridge Scholars Publishing is very pleased to be showcasing another of our highly regarded Series. Whilst our Series have always been an integral part of our publishing programme, we appreciate that there is a growing demand amongst our author community to expand our current portfolio, and publish leading-edge, peer-reviewed research that supports all scholars, from early career researchers to eminent senior academics, as well as practitioners.

A cornerstone of our Series programme is leveraging the expertise and networks of our Editorial Advisory Board, many of whom are experienced Series Editors themselves, and who ensure that our portfolio continues to have relevancy and impact.

With five published titles to date, Pierides is an established and acclaimed Series, co-edited by leading Latinist Professor Philip Hardie of Trinity College, Cambridge (left, above) and Stratis Kyriakidis, Emeritus Professor of Latin Literature at the University of Thessaloniki (left, below).

This series publishes studies on Ancient Greek and Latin literature in the form of monographs, edited collaborative volumes, and commentaries. The editors encourage new approaches in familiar fields, as well as studies of neglected texts and topics. Quality is assured by strict peer review, and rigorous editorial control.

Many noteworthy academics from the fields of Classics and Ancient History have contributed to and edited volumes, which will appeal to scholars not only of these fields, but also of subjects including literature and philosophy.

The importance of this series in filling a notable lacuna in these subject areas is highlighted by David Konstan, Professor of Classics at New York University, who co-edited the third title in the series:

“At a time when scholarly publishing can be painfully slow, and editorial standards sometimes wanting, the Pierides series of Cambridge Scholars Publishing fills a real need.  The volumes in the series (one of which I was privileged to co-edit) cover a broad range of subjects, from catalogues and comedy to characterization and philosophical poetry, but all combine rigorous philology with imaginative new approaches. I congratulate the series editors for their good work”.

Stephen Harrison, Professor of Latin Literature at Oxford University and author of Pierides’ most recent volume, underlines the high standard of the series and of its editors:

“Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s series Pierides has already produced five excellent books on a range of topics, including both monographs and collective volumes. The international connections of its prestigious editorial team mean that it can draw in a number of high-grade projects world-wide, presenting outstanding work at the cutting edge of contemporary work in classics. It is an excellent resource which is much valued by the world of classical scholarship”.
