Katarzyna Lecky, Loyola University Chicago, firstname.lastname@example.org
This series of books explores the connections among historiography, culture, and textual representation in various disciplines. Revisionist in intention, Aperçus seeks monographs as well as guest-edited multi-authored volumes that stage critical interventions to open up new possibilities for interrogating how systems of knowledge production operate at the intersections of individual and collective thought.
We are particularly interested in medieval, Renaissance, early modern, and Restoration texts and contexts. Areas of focus include premodern conceptions and theorizations of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in art, literature, historical artefacts, medical and scientific works, political tracts, and religious texts; negotiations between local, national, and imperial intellectual spheres; the cultures, literatures, and politics of the excluded and marginalized; print history and the history of the book; the medical humanities; and the cross-pollination of humanistic and scientific modes of inquiry.
We welcome projects by early-career scholars, but are unable to consider unrevised dissertations.

CONTEMPORARY IRISH WRITERS
Anne Fogarty, University College Dublin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Irish Studies is currently being vigorously rethought, not only in connection to major figures such as James Joyce, W. B. Yeats, Eva Gore-Booth, Flann O’Brien, Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, and Mary Lavin but also within a larger framework, with particular attention to feminist issues, the environmental humanities, the perspectives of migrants in Irish society, nationalism and transnationalism, Northern Ireland and its writers, the Irish language, and the lively and often genre-crossing fiction, poetry, drama, and film of contemporary Ireland.
This series brings theoretically informed perspectives to a consideration of the work and lives of Irish writers. The volumes provide general discussions of interpretive issues and offer varied strategies for understanding them, with the intention of appealing to an informed audience–advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and general readers as well as scholars of Irish literature and culture.

THE GRIOT PROJECT BOOK SERIES
Cymone Fourshey, Bucknell University, email@example.com

TRANSITS: LITERATURE, THOUGHT & CULTURE, 1650-1850
A landmark series in long eighteenth-century studies and the Romantic era, Transits publishes monographs and edited volumes that are timely, transformative, and global in their engagement with arts, literature, culture, and history. Books in the series have engaged with visual arts, environment, politics, material culture, travel, theater and performance, embodiment, connections between the natural sciences and medical humanities, writing and book history, sexuality, gender, disability, race, and colonialism.
Transits publishes books that either focus on specific cultures or study connections and intimacies among multiple geographies from Britain and Europe to the Americas, the Far East, the Middle/Near East, Africa, and Oceania. Proposals should offer critical examinations of artifacts and events, modes of being and forms of knowledge, material culture, or cultural practices. Work that makes provocative connections between postcolonial and decolonial studies, that develops new modes of critical imagining such as those offered by critical race scholarship and the intersections among gender, sexuality, and disability studies are particularly welcome.
This well-established annual journal, under the editorship of Kevin L. Cope, commenced publication with Bucknell University Press in its 24th volume. 1650-1850 publishes essays and reviews from and about a wide range of academic disciplines—literature (in English and other languages), philosophy, art history, history, religion, and science. Interdisciplinary in scope and approach, 1650-1850 emphasizes aesthetic manifestations and applications of ideas, and encourages studies that move between the arts and the sciences—between the “hard” and the “humane” disciplines. The editors encourage proposals for “special features” that bring together five to seven essays on focused themes within its historical range, from the Interregnum to the end of the first generation of Romantic writers. While also being open to more specialized or particular studies that match up with the general themes and goals of the journal, 1650-1850 is in the first instance a journal about the artful presentation of ideas that welcomes good writing from its contributors.
The Age of Johnson welcomes contributions on all aspects of the literature, history, and culture of the period of Samuel Johnson’s literary career and primary influence, roughly the years from 1730 to 1810.
