 Contemporary Studies Series


* *

Book proposals are invited for an exciting new series in *Literature, Film
and Theory *; proposals that are critically innovative, diverse in
subject-matter, and challenging to existing critical frames are particularl=
welcome, as are those that engender progressive debate in the fields of
literature, film and theory. The series will also include author-specific,
or film-maker-specific studies that deal with their subjects in critically
original ways. No single critical or cultural frame is preferred; rather
the series reflects an aspiration to move beyond the limits of narrow
critical categories in order to explore how a variety of ways of reading
intersect in fruitful ways.


The following is a sample list of authors in whom we are particularly
interested, although we welcome alternative suggestions:

 Martin Amis

Margaret Atwood

John Banville

Italo Calvino

Peter Carey

The series also hopes to attract critical books on film-makers, particularl=
those who have perpetually expanded the aesthetic horizons of their medium
and who have contributed to an ever-expanding filmic vocabulary.
