Submission Guidelines

Our series publishes books from a variety of disciplines, including sociology, anthropology, religious and area studies, philosophy, political science, history, literary criticism, art, and other fields.  We are most interested in single author volumes.

If you would like to submit a book to the Religion, Culture, and Public Life series, please submit a brief proposal (no more than five pages) containing a description of the content and focus of the book, a table of contents or chapter outline, and professional information about the author, including previous publications.  Please do not submit full manuscripts or other extensive files as we will be unable to read them.

Submission proposals can be emailed to Melissa Van, Assistant Director, at mav2121@columbia.edu.

Please allow several weeks for a response.
