Bucknell Studies in Eighteenth Century Literature and Culture

This series, edited by Greg Clingham and including 51 titles between 1999 and 2010, produced much solid and some transformative work in interdisciplinary eighteenth-century studies.  Titles addressed critical, historical, theoretical, and cultural considerations as they touched the lives and work of particular writers and societies in eighteenth-century Britain, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, and the Americas.

Contemporary Irish Writers

This series builds on a successful earlier Irish Writers series at Bucknell.  Edited by John S. Rickard (Bucknell University) it provides short and accessible, but theoretically informed monographs discussing a contemporary Irish author's life and work. The energy and enthusiasm that currently characterize Irish Studies has persuaded Bucknell University Press to commence a new series of books of shorter, affordable, accessible, though intellectually serious studies of the most significant contemporary Irish authors.

 

Irish Writers Series

Each volume is devoted to one writer, giving a full acount of their literary career and major works, and considering the relationship of the writer's Irish background to their writings as a whole.

Transits: Literature, Thought & Culture 1650-1850

Begun in 2011 under the editoriship of Greg Clingham, this series of books has already begun to publish beautiful and surprising work.  Without ideological bias the series seeks transformative readings of the literary, artistic, cultural, and historical interconnections between Britain, Europe, the Far East, Oceania, and the Americas during the years 1650 and 1850, and as their implications extend down to the present time.  In addition to literature, art and history, such "global" perspectives might entail considerations of time, space, nature, economics, politics, environment, and material culture, and might necessitate the development of new modes of critical imagination, which are welcome.
