Exile Studies

Series Editor: Andrea Hammel, Aberystwyth University

A series founded by Alexander Stephan

https://www.peterlang.com/view/serial/EXIL

Exile Studies is a series of monographs and edited collections that takes a broad view of exile, including the life and work of refugees from National Socialism, and beyond. The series explores the different global and cultural spaces of exile and refuge as well as the specific historical, political and social concerns of exile writers and artists. The series engages with recent theoretical approaches to exile to shed new light on the unique conditions of mass flight from National Socialist persecution, with a particular interest in the work of Jewish refugees of the period. A plurality of theoretical approaches is encouraged, featuring research that reaches beyond national frameworks or disciplinary boundaries and takes multi-directional, transcultural or comparative approaches. The series aims to make connections to studies on more recent groups of refugees and to contribute to current debates. Themes include persecution, exclusion and delocalization, legacies of displacement, loss and acculturation as well as the creation of new homes and networks.

The series promotes dialogue among transnational, Jewish and memory studies, and among diaspora, Holocaust and postcolonial studies. It invites research that acknowledges questions of gender, race, class, religion and ethnicity as indispensable tools for understanding the cultural processes connected to the lives and works of refugees and exiles.

Series Editor Andrea Hammel is attending the AGS conference in Bangor and welcomes enquiries!

Proposals are welcome for monographs or edited collections. Those interested in contributing to the series should send a detailed project outline either to the series editor or to oxford@peterlang.com. For further information, please contact Dr. Laurel Plapp, Senior Commissioning Editor, at l.plapp@peterlang.com.
