Exeter Studies in Style promotes research into the relationship between language use and its social and historical contexts, as found across diverse texts and genres. It provides a broad platform for stylistic investigations that develop the field both theoretically and methodologically, promoting the intersection between stylistics and other humanities and social science disciplines. It welcomes investigations of texts and text-types from the canonical and literary to the emergent and atypical, spanning medieval manuscripts to digital media. At its heart, it publishes studies that interrogate how and why writers adopt particular styles in particular socio-historical moments, how styles adapt and change over time, and how and why readers - both then, and now - respond to those styles in the way that they do.
