About us

The Peter Lang Oxford office is located in the heart of the historic university city and serves authors across the UK and Ireland. We also have a commissioning presence in Dublin.

We publish a wide range of academic titles, including monographs and edited collections. We have particular strengths in modern languages, Irish studies, linguistics and theology. Our catalogue is constantly expanding into different areas, with recently established series in fields such as visual culture, cultural studies, education and religious studies. For more information about series in your subject area, please see the SERIES tab above.

We welcome proposals for new titles in all spheres of the humanities and social sciences. To submit a book proposal, please contact oxford@peterlang.com.
