The series Crossing Boundaries publishes works placed at the intersection of disciplinary boundaries to introduce fresh connections between established fields of study. The series especially welcomes research combining or juxtaposing different kinds of primary sources and new methodological solutions to deal with problems presented by them. Encouraged themes and approaches include, but are not limited to, identity formation in medieval/early modern communities and the analysis of texts and other cultural products as a communicative process comprising shared symbols and meanings.

The series is published in collaboration with the Turku Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies. For more information, please visit
