Announcing a new series from Ashgate Publishing Company- Literary and Scientific Cultures of Early Modernity Series Editors: Mary Thomas Crane, Boston College and Henry S. Turner, University of Wisconsin-Madison Ashgate's new series provides a forum for groundbreaking work on the relations between literary and scientific discourses in Europe, during a period when both fields were in a crucial moment of historical formation. We welcome proposals that address the many overlaps between modes of imaginative writing typical of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries-poetics, rhetoric, prose narrative, dramatic production, utopia-and the vocabularies, conceptual models, and intellectual methods of newly emergent "scientific" fields such as medicine, astronomy, astrology, alchemy, psychology, mapping, mathematics, or natural history. In order to reflect the nature of intellectual inquiry during the period, the series is interdisciplinary in orientation and will publish monographs, edited collections, and selected critical editions of primary texts relevant to an understanding of the mutual implication of literary and scientific epistemologies. Proposals should take the form of either 1) a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the project; or 2) a formal prospectus including: abstract, table of contents, sample chapter, estimate of length, estimate of the number and type of illustrations to be included, and a c.v. Please send a copy of either type of proposal to each of the series editors and to the publisher, at the addresses below: Mary Thomas Crane Dept of English Boston College 140 Commonwealth Avenue Chestnut Hill, MA 02467 USA Henry S.
