Strode Book Series

In conjunction with the University of Alabama Press, the Strode Program is proud to support a scholarly book series: Strode Studies in Early Modern Literature and Culture, edited by Professor Michelle M. Dowd. The series publishes innovative scholarship that examines the literature and culture of the early modern world. The series invites scholarly monographs (and, where appropriate, collections of especially groundbreaking scholarly essays) that shed new light on early modern texts and cultural products by putting them in dialogue with contemporary critical concerns. Subjects of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • ecocriticism
  • queer theory
  • postcolonialism
  • critical race studies
  • gender studies
  • affect studies
  • law and legal studies
  • food and material culture
  • history of medicine, science, and technology.

While focusing primarily on the English tradition, this series welcomes studies (written in English) of other early modern European literature and cultures, with particular interest in Italy and Spain.
