Edited by Jesús Benito Sánchez and Ana María Manzanas

The series locates itself within the field of comparative American studies, and focuses specifically on the analysis and criticism of the so-called “ethnic” American literatures. The orientation of the series is, explicitly, for the literary analysis to merge the political with the imaginative, and the culturally-specific with the cross-cultural. As an intercultural endeavor, the series assumes the inextricable link between standards of aesthetic value and power; aesthetic judgments are not made in an vacuum but are rather intimately connected with dominant cultural standards of value. In this sense, intercultural literary analysis should address issues of race, ethnicity, class and gender, while it focuses on literary topics, therefore occupying the interspace between the political and the aesthetic.

By ethnic American literature is understood the multiethnic literatures of the United States, with an emphasis on the comparative analysis of the different traditions (including African American literature, Asian American literature, Native American lit., Chicano and US latino literature, as well as other so called hyphenated or immigrant writers with non-US background like Indian writers, Arab American writers, European American writers, etc.). The series focus is mostly comparative, multiethnic, and intercultural, but would also love to feature analyses of single ethnic traditions.

The volumes in the series offer clear and comprehensive approaches to selected topics (such as magical realism, border theory, and others), covering the different implications of each topic to the development of ethnic American literatures. Volumes then proceed to comparative literary analyses of carefully selected works from each ethnic tradition.

Volumes should offer interrelated contributions. Each volume should consist of long articles, carefully designed to cover the whole field under study. Each article should offer a general, theoretical exploration of a particular topic, as well as argue a particular point.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.

Cross/Cultures

Readings in Post/Colonial Literatures and Cultures in English

Edited by Bénédicte Ledent and Delphine Munos

Active since 1990, the Cross/Cultures series has just passed the two-hundred mark, with books that reflect well the capaciousness of its title and subtitle. Accommodating both studies by single authors and edited critical collections, Cross/Cultures covers the whole range of the colonial and post-colonial experience across the English-speaking world—but not only this domain: the literatures and cultures of non-anglophone countries and regions also find a home in the series.
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. The series contains also two volumes with journal articles, essays and reviews published by Walcott.
Included in Cross/Cultures are collections of selected and revised papers from important conferences (ASNEL Papers = GAPS; ACLALS; EACLALS). It goes without saying that all book proposals and MSS undergo double blind peer review by experts in the field, after being admitted for consideration by the series editors, for whom open-mindedness and catholicity of interests are hallmark values. The editors pride themselves on maintaining high standards in content, aesthetics, language, and scholarly accuracy. All books are ushered through the production process with hands-on personal critical engagement—an approach that has helped make the series’ high international reputation.

The series Cross/Cultures includes the ASNEL Papers (Association for the Study of the New Literatures in English) subseries.

The series published an average of 8,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.
