Announcing a new book series from Ashgate Publishing

Ashgate Series in Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Studies

Series Editors:

Kevin Hutchings, Canada Research Chair in Romantic Studies and Associate
Professor of English, University of Northern British Columbia

Julia M. Wright, Canada Research Chair in European Studies and Associate
Professor of English, Dalhousie University

This series offers a forum for the publication of scholarly work
investigating the literary, historical, artistic, and philosophical
foundations of transatlantic culture. A new and burgeoning field of
interdisciplinary investigation, transatlantic scholarship contextualizes
its objects of study in relation to exchanges, interactions, and
negotiations that occurred between and among authors and other artists
hailing from both sides of the Atlantic. As a result, transatlantic research
calls into question established disciplinary boundaries that have long
functioned to segregate various national or cultural literatures and art
forms, challenging as well the traditional academic emphasis upon
periodization and canonization. By examining representations dealing with
such topics as travel and exploration, migration and diaspora, slavery,
aboriginal culture, revolution, colonialism and anti-colonial resistance,
the series will offer new insights into the hybrid or intercultural basis of
transatlantic identity, politics, and aesthetics.

The editors invite English language studies focusing on any area of the
period ca. 1750–1900, including (but not limited to) innovative works
spanning transatlantic Romantic and Victorian contexts. Manuscripts focusing
on European, African, US American, Canadian, Caribbean, Central and South
American, and Native or Indigenous literature, art, and culture are welcome.
We will consider proposals for monographs, collaborative books, and edited

Proposals should take the form of either

1. a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the project; or
2. a formal prospectus including abstract, chapter descriptions, sample
chapter, estimate of length, estimate of the number & type of illustrations
to be included, and c.v.
