New publication: “Reading Books and Prints as Cultural Objects”, ed. Evanghelia Stead

Adapted from the press release on http://www.palgrave.com

In 2015, Evanghelia Stead convened a conference on “Reading Books and Prints as Cultural Objects” in Freiburg at FRIAS (see our conference report here). A few weeks ago, a volume with the same title was published in Palgrave’s series “New Directions in Book History”. The book, edited by Evanghelia Stead, contributes to book, image and media studies from an interdisciplinary, comparative point of view. Its perspective spans medieval manuscripts to e-readers. Inventive methodology offers numerous insights into visual, manuscript and print culture: material objects relate to meaning and reading processes; images and texts are examined in varied associations; the symbolic, representational and cultural agency of books and prints is brought forward.
