Lise Jaillant

Lise Jaillant is an AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) Leader Fellow. She teaches in the School of the Arts, English and Drama at Loughborough University, UK. She specialises in twentieth-century literary institutions, with a special interest in publishers and creative writing programmes. Her first monograph was Modernism, Middlebrow and the Literary Canon: the Modern Library Series, 1917-1955 (Routledge, 2014). She then wrote Cheap Modernism: Expanding Markets, Publishers’ Series and the Avant-Garde (EUP, 2017) and she edited Publishing Modernist Fiction and Poetry (EUP, 2019). Taken together, these three books offer a broad overview of Anglo-American publishers in the early-twentieth-century, and their influence on the diffusion of modern literature.
