Palgrave Studies in Literature, Culture and Economics

Series Editors: Crosthwaite, Paul, Knight, Peter, Marsh, Nicky

This series showcases some of the most intellectually adventurous work
being done in the broad field of the economic humanities, putting it in
dialogue with developments in heterodox economic theory, economic sociology,
critical finance studies and the history of capitalism. It starts from the
conviction that literary and cultural studies can provide vital theoretical
insights into economics. The series will include historical studies as well as
contemporary ones, as a much-needed counterweight to the tendency within
economics to concentrate solely on the present and to ignore potential lessons
from history. The series also recognizes that the poetics of economics and
finance is an increasingly central concern across a wide range of fields of
literary study, from Shakespeare to Dickens to the financial thriller. In doing
so it builds on the scholarship that has been identified as the ‘new economic
criticism’, but moves beyond it by bringing a more politically and historically
sharpened focus to that earlier work.
