The goal of the Dialogue Series is to expand the range of critical debate devoted to literary authors, works and forms. To that end, Dialogue publishes new and recent criticism on literary writing that has elicited or is eliciting critical debate. In addition, Dialogue devotes occasional volumes to neglected works deemed worthy of renewed critical attention.
The Dialogue Series is devoted primarily to literary works written in English (or translated into English) after 1900. Engaging a variety of modes within that range, it includes the novel/romance, short fiction, poetry, drama and literary non-fiction (such as literary biography) as well as occasional volumes on emergent genres such as the graphic novel.
The Series’ editorial board will consider a wide range of submissions, but it is particularly interested in works that will fit into certain “lines” or sub-series within the series itself. These lines are designed to promote discussion between related literary works and also to stimulate discussion between literary works that have substantial connections that are too infrequently discussed. These lines form an open network of inter-related topic areas, literary works and discussions. The editorial board is actively considering developing new titles for the following lines:
• Ghetto Pastoral (including proletarian fiction)
• Postmodern Fiction
• Literary Biography
• African-American Literature
• Experimental Non Fiction
• Postcolonial Writing
• Modern Drama and Poetry
The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
