About the series

This interdisciplinary book series features women in the arts, sciences, politics, business and health sciences. We seek manuscripts that celebrate the indomitable spirit of women innovators who are among the first in their fields, who have made outstanding contributions to their fields, or who have paved the way for those who follow. These manuscripts may be:

  • monographs
  • edited collections
  • theoretical analyses
  • biographies
  • memoirs
  • illustrated volumes of visual art or photography
  • historical studies
  • contemporary analyses

Submittals do not have to be scholarly works.

The TWU Book Series falls under the auspices of the Jane Nelson Institute for Women's Leadership.
