This series publishes scholarly contributions to the growing and ever-changing fields of film and literary studies across the Americas. Written in English or Spanish, the titles in this series include edited volumes, books by single authors, and translations of scholarly monographs. They typically investigate film and literature of the Americas, examining works and trends in relation to form, genre, culture, politics, historiography and diverse areas of theory.

The term ‘Transamerican’ implies transnational and transregional perspectives on creative work from all over the Americas, with an emphasis on new assessments of Latin American work, but is not constrained to studies of multiple national cinemas or literatures, and may venture beyond the Americas for comparative purposes. It also encompasses studies of single works or bodies of work from the Americas whose thematics or aesthetics warrant attention from a broad readership interested in Transamerican Studies. The mission of the series is to provide a site of dialogue and new collaborations between scholars working on this subject throughout the Americas and other continents, emphasizing the region’s growing diversity of critical and theoretical perspectives on film and literature.

New proposals for the series are welcome. For more information, or to submit a book proposal, please contact Alessandra Anzani, Commissioning Editor, Email:
