New publication: Festschrift for Gabriele Müller-Oberhäuser

264794_cover_frontThis past Saturday, the Münster-based book historian and medievalist Gabriele Müller-Oberhäuser was honored with a Festschrift on the occasion of her 65th birthday. The essays in the volume, edited by Simon Rosenberg and Sandra Simon, reflect the variety of Müller-Oberhäuser’s interests: The contributions range from Chaucer’s Fürstenspiegel to the value of books in comedy, from the material book to the magical book in religious and literary cultures, from collaborative efforts in manuscript production to the relations of distributors of books across national and ideological boundaries, from the relations between the makers of books to the relation of readers to their books. Covering a period from the Middle Ages to the present, the volume concludes with a look at the future of book history as a field of study. More information can be found here; an excerpt is available here.
