Working-Class Literature(s): Historical and International Perspectives. Volume Two.

Research on working-class literature is too often confined by national borders. Just as many working-class people saw their fight as a global struggle enacted locally, our collection aims to give an overview of specific national working-class literary histories while acknowledging influences and contradictions of other national working-class literatures. It is our view that working-class literature is not a monolithic phenomenon, but rather many literature(s) in conversation with one another.

Building upon our first volume, we seek essays that will give readers an overview of a specific national working-class literature, one that perhaps examines a specific theme or historical period in detail. After reading the contributions of the other authors in the volume (and those in our first volume), authors may wish to make comparisons
to other national literatures (although this is not required). By placing these national histories together in this volume, readers will be able to trace the connections and disruptions of working-class literature(s) from a global perspective.

The aim of the second volume of this collection is to make possible the forging of a more robust, politically useful, and theoretically elaborate understanding of working-class literature(s) from a historical and international perspective.

We seek first drafts of essays by February 2019. Essays should be between 6,000-9,000 words. Although we do not have a contract, we are in conversation with Stockholm University Press, an open-access publisher, who published our first volume.

If you are interested in contributing to this edited collection, please contact Magnus Nilsson ( or John Lennon ( The first volume can be downloaded for free from the publisher’s webpage:
