Similar in its aim to the manifesto, the pamphlet, or the essay, the Provocations series takes a strong stand on contemporary debates and issues within the humanities. Rather than address a specific problem within a particular field, this series establishes a forum for the kind of cross-disciplinary theoretical experimentation that is the very essence of cutting-edge work in the humanities.
This series offers ambitious, polemical texts that exist outside the traditional formats of academic discourse (longer than an academic article and shorter than a monograph), and will concentrate on the broad philosophical and theoretical subjects involving the humanities. Seeking to fill a hole in the current publication market for the field of the theoretical humanities, books in the series will take a strong stand on a contemporary debate or issue within the humanities and propose a clearly formulated (even if controversial) intervention.
provocationsbooks.com is an independent website that publishes an online journal edited by Lydia Kerr and Nathan Gorelick. Each issue of the journal features short reviews devoted to a book published in the series.
Jesse E. Matz, series editor
The Frontiers of Narrative Series features interdisciplinary scholarship on narrative as it appears in a range of media. Studies in this series highlight the role of narrative across a variety of cultural and historical settings and outline new methods for investigating storytelling in all of its many guises.
Melissa Homestead, series editor
Cather Studies presents new work about Willa Cather’s diverse writings (fiction, journalism, correspondence). Essays focus on her interesting relationships with other writers, the textual history of her works, as well as the cultural aesthetic and social contexts to her oeuvre. Appearing biennially, Cather Studies is the major forum for scholarship on this key American writer.
Manuscripts and editorial correspondence should be addressed to Melissa Homestead, Editor, Cather Studies, Department of English, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE 68588-0396.

Postwestern Horizons encourages scholarship which rethinks and reimagines traditional western scholarship by challenging predominant paradigms, including revisionist ones, and dislocating our sense of region. By moving past the West as a national place, process, and idea to more methodologically innovative, transnationally daring, and theoretically fertile horizons of scholarship, this series encourages new ways of conceiving cultural production and reception. Postwestern Horizons encompasses studies of visual culture, environmental studies, literature, history, film studies, and much more.
