Thank you for your interest in ICI Berlin Press!

Please check on our website to see whether your book idea fits into our publishing programme — we publish mainly edited volumes and monographs engaging in a critical dialogue among the humanities, the natural and social sciences, and the arts.

The book series ‘Cultural Inquiry’ welcomes proposals for books (monographs or edited volumes) fitting the general profile of the ICI Berlin as defined in particular through its core projects and foci.

Authors or editors wishing to present a book proposal should write to the series editors with a brief prospectus including

  • A description of the work
  • Expected length and number of illustrations
  • Information on the schedule for completion of the manuscript
  • A curriculum vitae
  • Table of contents
  • A sample chapter
  • If the book is a collection of essays, please indicate who the contributors will be and include their abstracts as well as a preliminary version of the introduction.

Inquiries, proposals, and manuscripts for evaluation are taken throughout the year, but decisions for inclusion in the series are usually taken twice a year in late March/October and material should be submitted a month earlier, i.e. by the end of February/September to receive full consideration.

We prefer book proposals to be sent by email. For reasons of time and cost, we are unfortunately unable to return unsolicited manuscripts. We do not accept liability for manuscripts and materials, so please never send us the original, only a copy.


Please send your proposal to:

Christinenstr. 18–19
