Old Books and New Histories

Learn English Through Story - The Stranger by Norman Whitney

Studies in the culture and history of the book are a burgeoning academic specialty. Intriguing, rigorous, and vital, they are nevertheless rooted within three major academic disciplines - history, literary studies, and bibliography - that focus respectively upon the book as a cultural transaction, a literary text, and a material artefact. Old Books and New Histories serves as a guide to this rich but sometimes confusing territory, explaining how different scholarly approaches to what may appear to be the same entity can lead to divergent questions and contradictory answers. Rather than introduce the events and turning points in the history of book culture, or debates among its theorists, Leslie Howsam uses an array of books and articles to offer an orientation to the field in terms of disciplinary boundaries and interdisciplinary tensions. Howsam's analysis maps studies of book and print culture onto the disciplinary structure of the North American and European academic world. Old Books and New Histories is also an engaged statement of the historical perspective of the book.

    Publishing Research Quarterly. On my dissertation committee were a literature professor with a deep knowledge of jazz, a left wing political scientist with interests in dissident pop culture, and a music historian trained in European classical music but by then newly steeped in the folk music of Latin America to which he had escaped from the Nazis. What was rock music to these advisors? Literary text? 🙆‍♀️
