The aim of this new book series from one of the UK’s leading university presses is to present new groundbreaking approaches to the period in which Romantic writing was produced and consumed. As befits a series published in the city of Roscoe and Rushden, a city that linked Britain to the transatlantic trade in cotton, in sugar and in people, we welcome studies that reconfigure the literary and cultural geographies and histories of Romanticism, and we encourage proposals across a broad range of critical approaches. Topics of interest include, but are by no means confined to, provincial and labouring-class writing, diasporic and colonial writing, natural history and other scientific discourse, journalism, popular culture, music and theatre, landscape and nature, cosmopolitanism and travel, poetics and form.
