Sam Wiseman is a Lecturer in the Department of English and American Studies at the University of Potsdam, Germany, after he completed his PhD in English Literature at the University of Glasgow in 2013. His first book, The Reimagining of Place in English Modernism, was published by Clemson University Press in 2015, and he has also published articles on Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, John Cowper Powys, Mary Butts, and Colin MacInnes.
Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Sam has edited Assembling Identities, a collection of sixteen essays drawn from across the arts, humanities and social sciences, which represents a cross-disciplinary exploration of some of the ways in which identities – whether of individuals, communities, or nations – are constructed, maintained and contested.
Sam describes the experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:
“I worked with Cambridge Scholars Publishing on the essay collection ‘Assembling Identities’, which I edited and introduced. I chose to publish with them partly because I knew other postgraduate students at the University of Glasgow (where I was doing my PhD at the time) had published with them, and had reported a good experience. The publication process was very smooth and straightforward: everyone I corresponded with regarding formatting, design, proofreading and so on was helpful and pleasant, and the whole process was relatively fast. What I particularly appreciated was the creative control I was allowed over the whole process. Cambridge Scholars allowed me to produce exactly the collection I had envisioned, and trusted my editorial decisions. They even allowed me complete freedom over the cover design, which I commissioned a friend who works in graphic design to create. The collection has been an important addition to my CV – I feel it has benefited me to have an edited collection on there at an early stage of my career.”
