Law and Literature aims to publish exciting new work that richly connects legal ideas to literary and cultural history, texts, and artifacts. The series showcases innovative, interdisciplinary books that engage with legal and literary forms, concepts, methods, dispositions, and media, and is open to a wide range of historical periods, literary genres, legal doctrine and theory, and transnational subjects.

Books published in Law and Literature will provide powerful legal and literary analysis, methodological sophistication, and engaging prose, as well as theoretically and historically informed work that uncovers relations among legal methods and logics in conjunction with the literary imagination. The series editors seek innovative and interdisciplinary studies of every kind, including but not limited to work that examines race, ethnicity, gender, national identity, criminal and civil law, legal procedure and methods, digital media, intellectual property, economic markets, and corporate power, while also foregrounding current interpretive methods in the humanities, using these methods as dynamic tools that are themselves subject to scrutiny. In this way, law in its concrete facticity and historicity will be illuminated by means of literary and cultural methodologies, and those methodologies will in turn receive new vitality from their encounter with the languages and logics of the law.

Law and Literature aspires to the best original scholarship, imaginatively executed, adroitly argued, and cogently presented - books that will reignite the various communities of law-literature studies in vigorous and provocative ways.
