Invisible Culture

The television network AMC's historical drama Mad Men, set in 1960-64, premiered in 2007. While the program was slowly accepted by audiences, at least as slowly as its methodical narrative structures, it clearly struck a chord among a cross-generational body of viewers, tripling in size from the first season.

Scholarship in Book History or Print Culture in Anglophone countries has also contributed to renewing approaches in literary sudies and the history of literature. Yet ethnic and minority authors have only recently been made the focus of Book History, as a recent article by Leon Jackson on the timidly growing alliance between book historians and scholars of African American cultures of print has underlined (" The Talking Book and the Talking Book Historian ", Book History, vol. 13, 2010, p.
