What We Publish
Bucknell University Press welcomes for consideration scholarly proposals in the arts, humanities and humanistically-oriented social sciences. We are particularly interested in the long 18th-century, Iberian studies, Latin American studies, and memoirs, but we are open to excellent and innovative scholarship in all humanistic fields.

This series of books explores the connections among historiography, culture, and textual representation in various disciplines. Revisionist in intention, Aperçus seeks monographs as well as guest-edited multi-authored volumes that stage critical interventions to open up new possibilities for interrogating how systems of knowledge production operate at the intersections of individual and collective thought.
We are particularly interested in medieval, Renaissance, early modern, and Restoration texts and contexts. Areas of focus include premodern conceptions and theorizations of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in art, literature, historical artefacts, medical and scientific works, political tracts, and religious texts; negotiations between local, national, and imperial intellectual spheres; the cultures, literatures, and politics of the excluded and marginalized; print history and the history of the book; the medical humanities; and the cross-pollination of humanistic and scientific modes of inquiry.
We welcome projects by early-career scholars, but are unable to consider unrevised dissertations.
The Bucknell Review was, for fifty years, a major journal of letters, arts, and sciences published by the University. It appeared in both paper cover and hardback, and published some of the leading scholars in the humanities of the time. It came to prominence under the long editorship of Harry Garvin, and it has featured work by dozens of Bucknell faculty. The Bucknell Review evolved out of an earlier journal, Bucknell University Studies (1949-1954), and it has been succeeded by a new interdisciplinary publication launched in 2004, Apercus: Histories Texts Cultures.
This series, including 51 titles between 1999 and 2010, produced much solid and some transformative work in interdisciplinary 18th-century studies. Titles addressed critical, historical, theoretical and cultural considerations as they touched the lives and work of particular writers and societies in 18th-century Britain, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy and the Americas.

This highly successful series has published some of the best recent criticism on Latin American literature. Acknowledging the historical links and cultural affinities between Latin American and Iberian literatures, the series productively combines scholarship with theory and welcomes consideration of Spanish and Portuguese texts and topics, while also providing a space of convergence for scholars working in Romance studies, comparative literature, cultural studies and literary theory.

Campos Ibéricos is a series of monographs and edited volumes that focuses on the literary and cultural traditions of Spain in all of its rich historical, social, and linguistic diversity. The series provides a space for interdisciplinary and theoretical scholarship exploring the intersections between literature, culture, the arts, and media from medieval to contemporary Iberia. Studies on all authors, texts, and cultural phenomena are welcome and works on understudied writers and genres are specially sought.

Irish Studies is currently being vigorously rethought, not only in connection to major figures such as James Joyce, W. B. Yeats, Eva Gore-Booth, Flann O’Brien, Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, and Mary Lavin but also within a larger framework, with particular attention to feminist issues, the environmental humanities, the perspectives of migrants in Irish society, nationalism and transnationalism, Northern Ireland and its writers, the Irish language, and the lively and often genre-crossing fiction, poetry, drama, and film of contemporary Ireland.
This series brings theoretically informed perspectives to a consideration of the work and lives of Irish writers. The volumes provide general discussions of interpretive issues and offer varied strategies for understanding them, with the intention of appealing to an informed audience–advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and general readers as well as scholars of Irish literature and culture.
Essays in Economic & Business History was edited and printed by Bucknell University Press from 2010-2012. Articles for the journals were selected by blind review processes from submitted papers, which have been presented at the Annual Meetings of the Economic and Business Historical Society.
Founded by the late Carmen Gillespie, this interdisciplinary series, associated with Bucknell's Griot Institute for the Study of Black Lives and Cultures, publishes monographs, collections of essays, and poetry exploring the aesthetics, art, history, and culture of African America and the African diaspora.

Monographs in the Irish Writers Series appeared between 1970 and 1978 under the general editorship of J.F. Carens, and consist of studies of more than 40 Irish writers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Each title is devoted to one writer, gives an account of their literary career and major works, and considers the relationship of the writer's Irish background to their writings as a whole.

The only North American book series dedicated to French-language theatre, Scènes francophones publishes theoretically and historically informed research on dramatic texts and productions from medieval France to the contemporary French-speaking world.

This book series, with accompanying online materials, seeks to develop interdisciplinary and multimedia approaches to the concept of region, place and ethics in environmental studies. While including a range of disciplines, from sciences and social sciences to literature and philosophy, Stories of the Susquehanna Valley articulates narratives of an eco-region that played a formative if often hidden role in the early American republic, and which today provides potential models for more environmentally sustainable approaches to human community.

A landmark series in long eighteenth-century studies and the Romantic era, Transits publishes monographs and edited volumes that are timely, transformative, and global in their engagement with arts, literature, culture, and history. Books in the series have engaged with visual arts, environment, politics, material culture, travel, theater and performance, embodiment, connections between the natural sciences and medical humanities, writing and book history, sexuality, gender, disability, race, and colonialism.
Transits publishes books that either focus on specific cultures or study connections and intimacies among multiple geographies from Britain and Europe to the Americas, the Far East, the Middle/Near East, Africa, and Oceania. Proposals should offer critical examinations of artifacts and events, modes of being and forms of knowledge, material culture, or cultural practices. Work that makes provocative connections between postcolonial and decolonial studies, that develops new modes of critical imagining such as those offered by critical race scholarship and the intersections among gender, sexuality, and disability studies are particularly welcome.

This well-established annual journal, under the editorship of Kevin L. Cope, commenced publication with Bucknell University Press in its 24th volume. 1650-1850 publishes essays and reviews from and about a wide range of academic disciplines—literature (in English and other languages), philosophy, art history, history, religion, and science. Interdisciplinary in scope and approach, 1650-1850 emphasizes aesthetic manifestations and applications of ideas, and encourages studies that move between the arts and the sciences—between the "hard" and the "humane" disciplines. The editors encourage proposals for "special features" that bring together five to seven essays on focused themes within its historical range, from the Interregnum to the end of the first generation of Romantic writers. While also being open to more specialized or particular studies that match up with the general themes and goals of the journal, 1650-1850 is in the first instance a journal about the artful presentation of ideas that welcomes good writing from its contributors.
