Meet our Authors: Giada Goracci - April 2018 13 April 2018

Giada Goracci received a PhD in English Studies from the University of Verona in 2015. Her areas of research include gender studies, literature and film, literature and fashion studies, ethics, power, and the body. She is currently teaching Scientific English at the University of Verona. Giada serves on the Editorial Board for Teaching English for Specific and Academic Purposes, published by the University of Nis, Serbia, and the SDU Journal of English Studies, published by Suleyman Demirel University in Almaty, Kazakhstan. She is also a member of the Italian Association of English Studies (AIA) and the Italian Association of Law and Literature (AIDEL). 

In 2016 Giada published her first book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Male Perspectives in Atwood's "Bluebeard's Egg" and Hazzard's The Transit of VenusThe book investigates two re-writings of the fairy tale of Bluebeard, Margaret Atwood’s Bluebeard’s Egg and Shirley Hazzard’s The Transit of Venus, from the perspectives of male and queer studies, revealing how both illuminate contemporary concerns with gender and sexuality. 

Giada explains her reasons for, and experience of, publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

“I decided to publish with Cambridge Scholars Publishing because, as a researcher and a scholar, I strive to write up high-quality papers and monographs with the aim of providing theoretical insights and sharing my findings worldwide. My monograph represented the start of my academic career. Cambridge Scholars collaborated with me at every stage of the process, and I was glad to see that they truly value their relationships with their authors.

The monograph was the means through which my academic research promoted reflections on gender and diversity-related courses and projects, as well as fostering material for publication in the fields of male studies and gender studies at large. I am very proud of it, and the help of Cambridge Scholars was absolutely precious.”

Meet our Authors: Harry Eiss - April 2018 13 April 2018

Harry Edwin Eiss is a Full Professor at Eastern Michigan University, where he teaches world mythology, literature and creative writing. He has spent his life in a search for meaning and value, resulting in an interdisciplinary exploration of neurology, psychology, theology, philosophy and all of the arts and humanities. This resulted in his own theory of metaesthetics, which involves an application of the cutting edges of these disciplines to how humans think and comprehend existence.

Harry is a returning author with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, having authored or edited nine books with us to date. These include Christ of the Coal Yards: A Critical Biography of Vincent van Gogh (2010), Divine Madness (2011), The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke (2012), The Mythology of Dance (2013), a second edition of Insanity and Genius: Masks of Madness and the Mapping of Meaning and Value (2014), and The Joker (2016). 

His most recent book with Cambridge Scholars is Seeking God in the Works of T. S. Eliot and Michelangelo (2017), which explores how Eliot and Michelangelo struggled with the meaning of life and tried, in their work, to express the experience of God. 

Harry explains his reasons for continuing to publish with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

“Originally, Cambridge Scholars Publishing contacted me to put together a collection of essays because of my involvement with the Popular Culture Association. As a result of that positive experience, I decided to propose my own book to them. The results of the publication of this initial book with Cambridge Scholars – Insanity and Genius – began a string of publications, both my own work and my editing of collections, that continues to the present.

My publications with Cambridge Scholars have resulted in numerous dialogues with other scholars throughout the world, and offers from other publishers. However, because of my positive experiences, I continue to be loyal to Cambridge Scholars.”
