Liverpool University Press is pleased to announce a new series in Irish Literature, led by series editors Eve Patten (Trinity College Dublin), Frank Shovlin (University of Liverpool) and Tom Walker (Trinity College Dublin).
Liverpool Studies in Irish Literature will offer insights into a diverse range of texts, themes, moments, figures and networks in Irish literature from c.1800 through to the present. Titles will reflect the wealth of innovative and exciting critical, historical and biographical research currently being conducted into Irish literature, drawing on new methodologies and perspectives, as well as the best traditions of literary scholarship. The series editors welcome proposals from both early-career and established scholars for monographs on under-examined writers, works, genres, issues and ideas in Irish literary history, but will also consider fresh approaches to more well-established movements and figures.
Frank Shovlin, speaking on behalf of the series editors said, “We are delighted to be launching our new Liverpool Studies in Irish Literature series. The series aims to publish rigorous and scholarly new monographs that will expand and challenge current understandings of the Irish literary field. We will be happy to consider books on established canonical figures such as W.B. Yeats and James Joyce, and we will be equally comfortable with considerations of less extensively examined issues and ideas in Irish literary history.”
Commissioning editor Christabel Scaife said “There is so much exciting work going on in this field at the moment, and we are really looking forward to working with an outstanding team of series editors to develop this new forum for research in Irish literary studies.”
