This postgraduate class focuses on current research issues in book studies (broadly understood to include book history and publishing studies). It is addressed to advanced students interested in pursuing research in this area. The general objective is to support students in preparing and conducting their individual research projects including, but not limited to, their master‘s theses. While we will center these individual projects, we will also read and discuss influential new research in book studies. The class will also help students with the individual study requirements of the research modules in the MA courses of study. This course requires active participation, including an oral project presentation.
