Literature, Film, and Theory Series

Cambria Press Series in Literature, Film and Theory

The Cambria Contemporary Literature, Film, and Theory Series will be critically innovative, diverse in subject matter, and challenging to existing critical frames. Proposals that engender progressive debate in the fields of literary and/or cultural theory are welcome, as are author-specific or filmmaker-specific studies that deal with their subjects in critically original ways. The series does not align itself to any one particular critical or cultural frame; rather it reflects an aspiration to move beyond the limits of singular categories in order to explore how many ways of reading can intersect in fruitful ways. The Series Editor is Dr. Neil Murphy.

The following is a sample list of authors of interest although alternative suggestions are welcomed:

Martin Amis Margaret Atwood John Banville
Sebastian Barry Italo Calvino Peter Carey
Caryl Churchill Don deLillo Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Romesh Gunesekera Sunetra Gupta David Hare
Aidan Higgins Geoffrey Hill Ted Hughes
Sarah Kane Milan Kundera Hanif Kureishi
Tony Kushner Doris Lessing Naguib Mahfouz
Derek Mahon David Malouf Ian McEwan
Medbh McGuckian Vladimir Nabokov Harold Pinter
Salman Rushdie Tom Stoppard Jeanette Winterson

Manuscripts on filmmakers, particularly those who have perpetually expanded the aesthetic horizons of their medium and who have contributed to an ever-expanding filmic vocabulary, are also welcome. Inquiries should be directed to
