Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Studies

Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Studies is a collection of the Société d’Études Anglo-Américaines des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles promoting interdisciplinary work on the period c.1603–1815, covering all aspects of the literature, culture and history of the British Isles, colonial and post-colonial America, and other British colonies. The series welcomes academic monographs, as well as collective volumes of essays, that combine theoretical and methodological approaches from more than one discipline to further our understanding of the period and geographical areas.
