Studies in Classical & Late Antiquity Series


Gorgias Press is now accepting book proposals for its updated and inter-disciplinary book series: Studies in Classical and Late Antiquity (CLA). As part of its commitment to publish original academic works in the Humanities, Gorgias Press invites scholars to submit monographs, edited volumes and translations related to the Greco-Roman world and its transition into Late Antiquity, encompassing political and social structures, religion, knowledge and educational ideals, art, architecture and literature. The series will also be interested in studies that look at the interactions between the Greco-Roman worlds with other religious, geographical and cultural groups across the world – in particular those located in, or emerging from Arabia, Persia, Central Asia, and the Mediterranean.  

All suitable submissions will be peer-reviewed by two leading specialists and the series is overseen by new editorial boards made up of distinguished scholars in the field. The series also welcomes revised Ph.D. theses. Submissions may be written in English, German, French, and Spanish. To submit a proposal, please send the following information to the series’ acquisitions editor, Adam Walker (
