Teaching the History of the Bookwill assemble essays by scholars and teachers from across all fields of literary and language study, exploring theories, practices, and problems in teaching about and with the history of the book. Essays in the volume will provide historical context, theoretical frames, and practical insights for effectively teaching the history of the book, as a subject in its own right and as a component or method in courses on other subjects in the field of literature and language, both within and beyond the Anglophone world.

On behalf of the Editorial Board, it is my pleasure to share with the launching of Worldwide Waste:Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies. The journal will be of direct interest to scholars in postcolonial studies, waste and discard studies, environmental humanities, cultural anthropology and others. We have issued a Call for Papers, Special Collection: ‘Unpacking Food and Drink’ (details below).
A good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.
Byron Caminero-Santangelo and Garth A. Myers describe peripheral African environments as “Environment at the Margins” in the book of the same title. The field of postcolonial ecocriticism, which has been flourishing over the past one decade, is now widely perceived to be an interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative field of inquiry as it recognizes the complexities of interdisciplinary dialogues and critiques a universalizing or homogenizing impulse of capitalism, colonialism, and imperialism.
Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts:
Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing
Please circulate widely.
In addition to conveying controversial ideas, books themselves have both committed and inspired mad, bad, and dangerous behaviour. The production and consumption of printed matter can be subversive, destructive, or downright criminal. Studying books as material objects reveals controversies that are fascinating in their own right, regardless of the subject matter between their covers.
