The University Press of New England and the Williams College-Mystic Seaport Maritime Studies Program seek book proposals for our “America and the Sea” series. We are looking for works in three categories:
- Suggestions for timely reissues of forgotten, out of print American works of literary and cultural distinction, with new introductions that frame and engage the work for a modern audience.
- Proposals for anthologies and/or selected editions of writers’ work.
- Proposals for books of original scholarship or of general interest, according to the series mission statement below.
We have particular interest in underrepresented voices and “blue” environmental studies. Although the submissions deadline will remain running, first considerations begin on March 18, 2016. View this link for the full description and initial submission directions.
