broadviewDistinguished Teaching Professor Beth McCoy’s 2006 PMLA article “Race and the (Para)textual Condition” will be reprinted in a new anthology on the history of the book due out in May 2014 from Broadview Press.

The Broadview Reader in Book History is edited by Michelle Levy and Tom Mole.

From the publisher’s website:

Book History has emerged as one of the most exciting new interdisciplinary fields of study in the humanities. By focusing on the production, circulation, and reception of the book in all its forms, it has transformed the study of history, literature and culture. The Broadview Reader in Book History is the most complete and up-to-date introduction available to this area of study.

The reader reprints edited versions of key essays in the field, grouped conceptually and provided with headnotes, explanatory footnotes, an introduction, a chronology and a glossary of terms.
