Outlaws in Literature, History, and Culture examines the nature, function, and context of the outlaw and the outlawed - people, spaces, practices - in the pre-modern world, and in its modern representations. By its nature, outlawry reflects not only the outlawed, but the forces of law which seek to define and to contain it. Throughout the centuries, a wide and ever-changing, and yet ever familiar, variety of outlaw characters and narratives have captured the imagination of audiences both particular and general, local and global. This series seeks to reflect the transcultural, transgendered and interdisciplinary manifestations, and the different literary, political, socio-historical, and media contexts in which the outlaw/ed may be encountered from the medieval period to the modern.
This series accepts proposals for scholarly monographs and edited collections of essays whose focus includes literary, historical, folkloric, and cultural studies; critical editions; and translations of outlaw texts. And while the outlaw is perhaps best known as a figure from the Middle Ages, the lives of outlaws continue to live well beyond the medieval period; as such, Outlaws in Literature, History, and Culture's chronology begins in the Middle Ages and continues to the present day.
We are currently accepting book proposals for Outlaws in Literature, History, and Culture. Please send copies of your proposal to the editors at akaufman@aum.edu and l.a.coote@hull.ac.uk and to Whitney Feininger at wfeininger@ashgate.com.
