Writing and Culture in the Long Nineteenth Century relaunched with new co-editor

We are pleased to announce the relaunch of

Writing and Culture in the Long Nineteenth Century

Edited by

Professor J. B. Bullen (Kellogg College, Oxford)

with new co-editor

Associate Professor Charlotte Ribeyrol (Sorbonne Université, Paris)

The long nineteenth century, extending from the Napoleonic Wars to the First World War, was a time of enormous change and experimentation. This series aims to publish the work of scholars and critics alert to these changes in a variety of spheres, including literature, art, the sciences, philosophy, and economics. The editors have a special interest in work that addresses questions of aesthetics, poetics, and form at the intersection between the written word, the visual and decorative arts, architecture, and music. Many scholars are now working on the cultural matrix out of which these forms emerge and recent critical thinking has shown how important was the prevailing economic, political, scientific, and philosophical climate in creating the appropriate conditions for artistic production. Some volumes in the series focus on specific writers and texts, while others consider the connection between writing, art, philosophy, and science and the broader cultural horizon. All contribute significantly to the widening sphere of nineteenth-century literary studies.

Proposals are welcome for monographs or edited collections. For further information, please contact
Laurel Plapp, Senior Commissioning Editor, at l.plapp@peterlang.com.


We are delighted to welcome Charlotte aboard and we thank Isobel Armstrong for her collaboration on the series over the past few years!
