Call for Book Proposals: Monograph or edited volume proposals for our series in Literary Studies
Vernon Press invites proposals for monographs or edited volumes for our Series in Literary Studies.
Literary studies is one of the richest and most interdisciplinary fields of study, encompassing a wide array of valid approaches, from the historical, to the theoretical, to the experimental. Broadly speaking, works of literary scholarship aim to change or enhance the way we read texts by investigating their complexity.

- Female writers in English Literature
- Origins of the English Language
- Medieval literature
- Literary objects/Material culture
- Mass media and pop culture

- Early modern theatre; Shakespeare
