LAUNCH OF A NEW BOOK SERIES
Studies in Medieval Literature
Edited by Albrecht Classen, University Distinguished Professor of German Studies, University of Arizona firstname.lastname@example.org
DESCRIPTION AND RATIONALE
This new book series invites medievalist scholars to submit their research in the form of book-length manuscripts (ca. 250--300 manuscript pages each). In particular, we would like to invite proposals for projects that take interdisciplinary, ecocritical, gender studies, xenology, or communicative approaches to the study of medieval literature. We welcome monographs on medieval women’s literature; comparative aspects of medieval literature in different languages or from different national, cultural or religious backgrounds; projects that apply space- and time-oriented or animal studies approaches to literature of the medieval era; and projects in the field of manuscript studies, textual analysis, and interdisciplinary literary studies.

Dr. Albrecht Classen, University Distinguished Prof., University of Arizona, Dept. of German Studies.

His newest book, Water in Medieval Literature, is also under contract with Lexington. Also, he is editor of two scholarly journals, Mediaevistik (Peter Lang) and Humanities (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute). He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants for his work in medieval literature.
Advisory Board – All board members are well established in their field, and each member specializes in medieval literature written in a specific language and so will be able to advise on proposals in relevant areas. Additional members who would cover further fields in medieval literature, will be invited, as the situation will arise.
