A New Book Series from Scarecrow Press (imprint of Rowman & Littlefield)
Series Editor: Bob Batchelor
The Scarecrow Press Contemporary American Literature Series is currently accepting proposals for volumes focused on how American literature reflects and shapes our knowledge of our cultural, historical, and socio-economic worlds. In an age when “literature” now encompasses everything from multi-modal texts to timeless classics in the canon, the time is ripe for assessing, reassessing, and refocusing our gaze on the centrality of literature and the literary life in the contemporary world.
The Contemporary American Literature Series seeks to include single-author, co-author, and edited volumes that address the concerns listed above. The Series Editor also hopes to receive proposals that add to our current understanding of literature’s venerable titans, as well as rising stars on the literary scene. This new series intends to demonstrate literature’s enduring importance, while simultaneously providing innovative perspectives that will illuminate, inspire, and transcend literary and cultural analysis and criticism.
Volumes in the series will typically run between 80,000 – 110,000 words, exclusive of notes, bibliography, and index. Authors and editors are responsible for negotiating and securing their own permissions for use of images, illustrations, and other copyrighted material.
Proposals should include a discussion of the volume’s significance, its relationship to existing scholarly literature, intended readership, a proposed table of contents, estimated length, number of images, and projected timeline for completion, along with the author/editor’s CV. For more information, please see the Scarecrow proposal guidelines at: https://rowman.com/Page/AuthRes
Inquiries and proposals may be directed to the Series Editor, Bob Batchelor at email@example.com or to Scarecrow’s Senior Editor of Arts and Literature, Stephen Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
