Our friend and Bookman contributor Lee Trepanier writes to us about a new series he is launching for Lexington Books:

Lexington Books is pleased to announce the launch of the following new book series: Politics, Literature, and Film. We are actively seeking proposals for academic works that fit the below series descriptions. To learn more, please contact Justin Race or Lee Trepanier.

Politics, Literature, & Film / Lee Trepanier (Saginaw Valley State University)
This interdisciplinary series examines the intersection of politics with literature and/or film. The series is receptive to works that use a variety of methodological approaches, focus on any period from antiquity to the present, and situate their analysis in national, comparative, or global contexts. Politics, Literature, & Film seeks to be truly interdisciplinary by including authors from all the social sciences and humanities, such as political science, sociology, psychology, literature, philosophy, history, religious studies, and law. The series is open to both American and non-American literature and film. By putting forth bold and innovative ideas that appeal to a broad range of interests, the series aims to enrich our conversations about literature, film, and their relationship to politics.
