How to Publish in the Bithell Series of Dissertations
Launched in 1978 by the then Institute of Germanic Studies, the Bithell Series of Dissertations is designed to help young scholars publish recent work of high quality which has been accepted for the award of a research degree by a University in the United Kingdom or Eire. Among authors whose dissertations have appeared in the series are Sarah Bowden, Steffan Davies, Brigid Haines, Kevin Hilliard, Nicholas Saul, and Andrew Webber.
The series now runs to 43 volumes, with volumes 14 to 41 also being published in the MHRA’s Texts and Dissertations. Publication was recently resumed by the Institute of Modern Languages Research, and three volumes are in varying stages of preparation. Due to the support of the Bithell Bequest Fund, publication in the series does not require a subvention from the author.
Theses for possible inclusion in the series are considered by the Bithell Editorial Board twice annually, in the spring/early summer and in late autumn. Recommendations for theses to be considered should be made by the supervisor and/or examiner(s). Invitations to submit recommendations are circulated on the German-Studies and WIGS-Forum Jiscmail lists.
Recommendations should be sent to reach Dr Godela Weiss-Sussex, Chair of the Bithell Editorial Board at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, University of London. Proposals must be accompanied by a copy of the Examiners' Report and Abstract.
