Series Editors: Ann R. Hawkins, Texas Tech University, and Maura Ives, Texas A&M University

The series editors welcome proposals for interdisciplinary and comparative studies by humanities scholars working in a variety of fields, including literature; book history, periodicals history, print culture and the sociology of texts; theater, film, and performance studies; library history; history; gender studies; and cultural studies. Topics might include publishing histories of major figures or works, of regions, of genres, or studies of particular publishers or practices (including production, distribution, and reception) that hold special aesthetic, social, or political significance. We especially welcome focused argument-driven work that investigates and historicizes new or hybrid forms of text creation and dissemination, including nonprint materials, informal, specialized or private reception and distribution networks, the translation of TV and movies into print, and multimedia publishing practices.
To submit a proposal or for more information, please contact Ann Donahue, Publisher,
