Book History is an interdisciplinary field of research. We explore the role of the book as a material object, medium of literature and historically changing cultural artefact from theoretical, empirical and historical perspectives. Literature, in this context, goes beyond the poem, play or novel and comes to be seen as an expression of human culture more generally. Thus, Book History connects literary study with the sociology of text, textual criticism, cultural history and reception history.
