The Winchester Series
This Series features scholarly reprints of historical works that have a particular connection to Winchester and the surrounding locality. Each is accompanied by a new introductory essay that contextualises each work and attempts to explain its wider significance and connections.
Series Editor: Prof. Christopher Mulvey
The Preface Series
This Series will publish titles standing at the intersection of creative practice and critical interrogation. Each 'Preface' title will consist of an extended piece of creative work in a chosen form alongside a self-reflective commentary on the nature and construction of the piece, written by the author. Following in the tradition of a writer such as Henry James, who produced insightful commentaries on his own works, 'Preface Series' titles are to be both innovative, creative works and sophisticated reflections on the nature of the creative process.
Series Editor: Dr Neil Mccaw
Winchester Local Histories
This Series will publish works with an explicit connection to Winchester and its environs and will as such contribute to the evolving historical and socio-cultural understanding of the locality. However, the Series is interested in works that have relevance beyond just those interested in Winchester, focusing on (for examples) the effects of the railways; finance and business; the historical development of the town; the evolution of householding and property exchange; the Workhouse; electoral politics and reform; and cultural and literary practice.
Series Editor: Dr Mark Allen
Education in Context
This Series features publications from the broad spectrum of Education studies in which the focus is not the abstract theorising of education per se, but more on the interaction between ideas of pedagogy and learning and specific contexts, whether historical or contemporary. This concentration on 'applied' knowledge and research is intended to produce works that shed light on individual case studies whilst at the same time offering insight on the broader contexts of education.
Series Editor: Dr Stephanie Spencer
Literature and Politics
Contemporary writers engage in politics in various ways, from the occasional spirited intervention to a more sustained garnering of critical respect as pioneers of new cultural positions and identities. But in all cases politics is key to understanding writers and their works, providing rejuvenating critical approaches. This Series focuses directly on writers who have engaged with political controversies, adopting a historical, contextual approach to literature and politics rather than being preoccupied with theorising the politics of literature.
Series Editor: Prof. Jude Davies
New Perspectives on Veterinary History
This Series will feature interdisciplinary studies of veterinary history drawing on (for example) agricultural, economic, social and political history, anthropology, archaeology, medicine, zoology and cultural studies. These works might be historically focussed or contemporary, but what is most important is that they shed new light on a particular aspect of veterinary history and make a contribution to the growing scholarship in this area.
