I am seeking proposals for essays to be included in an edited collection on book clubs and reading communities. Contemporary book clubs are an ubiquitous socio-cultural phenomenon worldwide, having evolved from eighteenth- and nineteenth-century salons and literary societies. There is currently a growing body of scholarship on these groups, including but not limited to work by Cecelia Farr and Jaime Harker's The Oprah Affect: Critical Essays on Oprah's Book Club, Elizabeth Long's Book Clubs: Women and the Uses of Reading in Everyday Life, and Heather Murray's Come, bright improvement!: The Literary Societies of Nineteenth-Century Ontario.

A growing body of scholarship has placed labour issues, student debt, the job market, education funding, and resource allocation among the fundamental elements which condition the production and distribution of knowledge in not just the humanities, but the university as a whole.
