Studies in Publishing History: Manuscript, Print, Digital

Series Editors:

Exploring the intersection of publishing history, book history, and literary and cultural studies, this series supports innovative work on the cultural significance and creative impact of printing and publishing history, including reception, distribution, and translation or adaptation into other media. Proposals are welcome for interdisciplinary and comparative studies by humanities scholars and librarians working in a variety of fields, including literature; book history, periodicals history, and print culture and the sociology of texts; theater, film, and performance studies; library history; history; gender studies; and cultural studies. Topics might include, among other possibilities, publishing histories of major figures or works, of regions, of genres, or studies of particular publishers or practices (including production, distribution, and reception) that hold special aesthetic, social, or political significance. We especially welcome focused argument-driven work that investigates and historicizes new or hybrid forms of text creation and dissemination, including nonprint materials, informal, specialized or private reception and distribution networks, the translation of TV and movies into print, and multimedia publishing practices.

Reviews

"For those teaching and researching the transformation of literary texts or the material history of the book, this series promises new and insightful case studies … by focusing on the publication history of a work, the series will explore the link between the material form and rereadings of the text." --Alexis Weedon, Professor of Publishing Studies and Director of the Research Institute for Media Arts and Performance, University of Bedfordshire, UK
