Clemson Launches Eighteenth-Century Moments Book Series

Clemson University Press announces a new book series, Eighteenth-Century Moments, under the editorship of Greg Clingham.

As director of Bucknell University Press between 1996 and 2018, Dr. Clingham published two book series (numbering more than 200 titles) that helped to transform eighteenth-century studies into the rich and dynamic field it is today.

Eighteenth-Century Moments will build on this record by publishing outstanding, memorable works of scholarship, from early modern to enlightenment and Romantic literature, history, and culture. Emphasizing depth of research, quality of thought, and accessibility of style—rather than genre, ideology, or methodology—Eighteenth-Century Moments encourages the submission of books of various kinds—not only critical, historical, and theoretical considerations from within the British, American, and global Anglophone contexts, but also collections of essays, biographies, book-histories, historiographies, single-author studies, and scholarly editions. The series will open a new, exciting period of publication in the scholarship of the long eighteenth century.
