Literary Urban Studies Series

Palgrave publishes a Literary Urban Studies Series

The Literary Urban Studies Series has a thematic focus on literary mediations and representations of urban conditions. Its specific interest is in developing interdisciplinary methodological approaches to the study of literary cities. The series’ focus allows for the inclusion of perspectives from related fields such as urban history, urban planning, and cultural geography. Interdisciplinary in approach and global in range, the series actively commissions and solicits works that can speak to an international and cross-disciplinary audience. The series is accepting proposals for monographs and book collections in the field of literary urban studies.
