Rationale, Breadth and Scope
Since many of the most significant Italian writers and literary movements of the modern period have gone beyond national, linguistic, and disciplinary borders, the principal aim of series is to create a forum for work of the highest caliber that challenges the strictures of national, linguistic, and cultural borders, and engages in the comparative study of literary traditions from the Unification to the present. This series will support areas of study such as the avant-garde, modernism and postmodernism, literary theory, the international reception of Italian writers, the relations between literature and the other arts, and the impact of other discourses (philosophical, political, and scientific) on literature.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by experts in the relevant field(s), and will also require approval by the Series Editor and Firenze University Press. The series’ Advisory Board, made up of scholars of international standing, will also be consulted as appropriate. The priority is to ensure that the series establishes itself as a benchmark in the field of modern Italian literary studies.
Potential authors should submit — to the series editor, Joseph Francese (see contact information below) — a cover letter that includes an abstract of approximately 200 words, a professional biographical note of approximately 100 words, and a statement that the work in question currently is not under consideration elsewhere. It should also distinguish between new and previously published chapters and apprise as to the copyright status of chapters already in print. Sample chapters from the work (if available) should also be sent electronically to the series editor as Word documents.
This series will offer a broad array of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches developed outside the specific Italian national context. It will enable dialogue between intellectuals and academics working in Italian studies in a global context and, thus, will provide a fecund site for comparing and contrasting the autochthonous national tradition and those of Anglophonic countries.
