European Studies in North American Literature and Culture

European Studies in North American Literature and Culture, in existence since 1996, is a Camden House series presenting European perspectives on the literature and culture of the United States and Canada (books in the series are mainly written by European scholars). Allowing for a broad cultural studies approach and including both single-authored and edited volumes, the series considers literary works in all genres. The scope of individual volumes ranges from focus on an individual author’s oeuvre (as in the “Works and Impact” format, to be continued for further authors) to books on particular thematic issues or even on the literary history of an entire nation. The envisioned audience of these reader-friendly and accessible books are literary scholars and students from the fields of American Studies, Canadian Studies, and Comparative Literature.
