Lund Studies in English

Lund Studies in English is an academic series founded by Professor Eilert Ekwall in 1933. Published by the English Studies unit at the Centre for Languages and Literature at Lund, it contains monographs, and the occasional edited volume, on the English language and on literature in English. Many of the books in the series, which now numbers well over 110 volumes, started life as doctoral theses presented at Lund; but Lund Studies in English also accommodates works by senior scholars affiliated with English at Lund.

The current editors, Professors Carita Paradis (English Language) and Marianne Thormählen (English Literature), ensure that all books published in the series are sound scholarly works of an internationally acceptable standard. They occasionally consult independent peer reviewers in order to safeguard the quality of the series.

Lund Studies in English has a number of subscribers, including the leading research libraries in the English-speaking world.
