"In a world where language and naming are power, silence is oppression, is violence."
― Adrienne Rich, On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978

"When we (as readers) fill in the gaps that the writer has peppered throughout the book, we form a meaningful bond with the book. We are not just pulling information from it; we're participating in a reciprocal relationship, creating and deriving meaning in an extravaganza of interpretation."
—Wolfgang Iser, Prospecting: From Reader Response to Literary Anthropology

As the series editor for Engagements with Literature, a new series from Routledge, I am interested in receiving proposals for books that might suit the remit of the series, described below.

Two other titles—Engagements with Nature Writing and Engagements with Contemporary Critical Theory—are in progress.

If you have an idea for a book in this series, please contact me at I am open to considering any topics that may suit the description below. I would like to know what your experience is as a scholar, author, and teacher.
