New Palgrave Macmillan Book Series

Edited by:

  • David Bolt, Liverpool Hope University, UK
  • Elizabeth J. Donaldson, New York Institute of Technology, USA
  • Julia Miele Rodas, Bronx Community College, City University of New York, USA

Literary Disability Studies is the first book series dedicated to the exploration of literature and literary topics from a disability studies perspective. Focused on literary content and informed by disability theory, disability research, disability activism, and disability experience, the Palgrave Macmillan series provides a home for a growing body of advanced scholarship exploring the ways in which the literary imagination intersects with historical and contemporary attitudes toward disability. This cutting edge interdisciplinary work will include both monographs and edited collections (as well as focused research that does not fall within traditional monograph length).

The series is supported by an editorial board of internationally-recognised literary scholars specialising in disability studies:

  • Michael Bérubé, Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Literature, Pennsylvania State University
  • G. Thomas Couser, Professor of English emeritus, Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York
  • Michael Davidson, Vice Chair in the Department of Literature, University of California, San Diego
  • Cynthia Lewiecki-Wilson, Professor of English and Director of Composition, Miami University, Ohio
  • Tobin Siebers, V. L. Parrington Collegiate Professor, Professor of English and Art and Design, University of Michigan
