CFP: [18th] 18th-C. Brit Lit & History Book Series
Announcing a new book series from Ashgate Publishing
British Literature in Context in the Long Eighteenth Century
Series Editor: Jack Lynch, Associate Professor of English,
Rutgers - Newark, The State University New Jersey
This series aims to promote original scholarship on the
intersection of British literature and history in the long
eighteenth century, from the Restoration through the first
generation of the Romantic era.
Both "literature" and "history" are broadly conceived. Literature
might include not only canonical novels, poems, and plays but
also essays, life-writing, and belles lettres of all sorts, by
both major and minor authors. History might include not only
traditional political and social history but also the history of
the book, the history of science, the history of religion, the
history of scholarship, and the history of sexuality, as well as
broader questions of historiography and periodization.
The series editor invites proposals for both monographs and
collections taking a wide range of approaches. Contributions
should be interdisciplinary but always grounded in sound
historical research; the authoritative is always preferred to the
merely trendy. All contributions should be written so as to be
accessible to the widest possible audience, and should seek to
make lasting contributions to the field.
Proposals should take the form of either
1. a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the
2. a formal prospectus including abstract, chapter descriptions,
sample chapter, estimate of length, estimate of the number &
type of illustrations to be included, and CV.
Please send a copy of either type of proposal to both the series
editor and to the publisher at the following addresses:
