Storytelling and the Middle Ages
We are pleased to announce our new book series "Storytelling and the Middle Ages", edited by Kleio Pethainou (University of Edinburgh). This series examines the cultural practice of storytelling in and about the Middle Ages. It aims at advancing our understanding of the art and practice of storytelling in the global Middle Ages in different languages and media. It places particular emphasis on the combination of narration and performance, and it extends its scope to include contemporary storytelling of medieval stories and themes. Moreover, the series invites contributions researching the stories we tell today about the Middle Ages, and so welcomes perspectives on medievalism and the ways our narratives about our cultural past connect with historical reality. The series welcomes a global perspective and a comparative point of view.

I am most pleased to recommend Trivent publishing to anyone who is at the “publish a book” stage of life. The team is professional, outstanding, supportive, they are intelligent editors who will direct, not coddle, an author on his/her journey to publication.
I have been working with the Philosophical Journal of Conflict and Violence since its debut in 2017. It has been a pleasant experience to see how the papers take shape in the process from submission to peer review to publication. The editor-in-chief together with the Trivent team do a tremendous job and are always seeking quality above all!
I’ve participated in two conferences organized by Trivent in the last few years and both were a nice experience – went smoothly and had decent talks in good spirit. When it came to managing manuscripts, I was surprised by the professionalism by which they helped my text get published. I definitely enjoyed working with them!
