Active since 1990, Cross/Cultures covers the whole range of the colonial and post-colonial experience across the English-speaking world as well as the literatures and cultures of non-anglophone countries. The series accomodates both studies by single authors and edited critical collections.

The broad spectrum of Cross/Cultures can be illustrated by book topics as diverse as black South African autobiography, Kenyan settler writing, the African-Jamaican aesthetic, Australian and New Zealand poetry, Southeast Asian art after 1990, diasporic trauma in Caribbean writing and women’s fiction of the Sri Lankan diaspora. Cross/Cultures has also published monograph treatments of such writers as Chinua Achebe, J.M. Coetzee, Kate Grenville, Caryl Phillips, Raja Rao, Derek Walcott, and Patrick White.

Included in Cross/Cultures are collections of selected and revised papers from important conferences (ASNEL Papers = GAPS; ACLALS; EACLALS).

All manuscripts undergo anonymous peer review by two experts in the field, after being admitted for consideration by the series editors, for whom open-mindedness and catholicity of interests are hallmark values, as well as maintaining scholarly accuracy.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the Publisher at Brill, Iulia Ivana.

"I started reading the Cross/Cultures series in my PhD days and have never stopped. Some of postcolonial studies’ most talented established and emerging scholars have published their research here. The series has also staged some of the liveliest intellectual debates in the field. Long may its work continue!"
- Claire Chambers, University of York

"Active since 1990, Cross/Cultures is a cutting-edge book series covering the whole range of the colonial and post-colonial experience across the English-speaking world as well as the literatures and cultures of non-anglophone countries. The series accommodates both studies by single authors and edited critical collections.”
- Bénédicte Ledent, Université de Liège and Delphine Munos, Université de Liège

"Marking the rapid expansion of colonial and postcolonial studies over the past three decades, Cross/Cultures has the reputation for high quality research into the dynamics of anglophone cultural production world-wide. With its outstanding publication record, this vibrant series is indispensable for all scholars working in the field." - Janet M. Wilson, University of Northampton
