=============================================================

Dear All,

 

Marissa McHugh and I are delighted to share the good news that our multi-authored book, Shakespeare and the Second World War:  Memory, Culture, Identity (University of Toronto Press) has just been published.  

 

Here is the link:
http://www.utppublishing.com/Shakespeare-and-the-Second-World-War-Memory-Culture-Identity.html

 


and a description from the dust jacket:

 


Shakespeare’s works occupy a prismatic and complex position in world culture: they straddle both the high and the low, the national and the foreign, literature and theatre. The Second World War presents a fascinating case study of this phenomenon: most, if not all, of its combatants have laid claim to Shakespeare and have called upon his work to convey their society’s self-image.

 

In wartime, such claims frequently brought to the fore a crisis of cultural identity and of competing ownership of this ‘universal’ author. Despite this, the role of Shakespeare during the Second World War has not yet been examined or documented in any depth. Shakespeare and the Second World War provides the first sustained international, collaborative incursion into this terrain. The essays demonstrate how the wide variety of ways in which Shakespeare has been recycled, reviewed, and reinterpreted from 1939–1945 are both illuminated by and continue to illuminate the War today
 

 

Please share this information with interested friends, colleagues, and students, and especially with your university librarian!

 

With thanks,

Rare Book School Receives Mellon Foundation Grant to Fund Fellowships in Critical Bibliography

 

New fellowship program seeks to reinvigorate bibliographical studies within the humanities

 

Charlottesville, VA, October 1, 2012 – Rare Book School (RBS) at the University of Virginia has been awarded an $896,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support a new three-year fellowship program, The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography, whose aim is to reinvigorate bibliographical studies within the humanities.

 

The Mellon Fellowship program will enable a select group of doctoral candidates, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty in the humanities to receive advanced, intensive training in the analysis of textual artifacts. Led by a distinguished faculty drawn from the bibliographical community and professionals in allied fields, fellows will attend annual research-oriented seminars at Rare Book School and at major special collections libraries nationwide. Fellows will receive stipends to support research-related travel to special collections, and additional funds to host academic symposia at their home institutions.

 

“This grant will enable our School to deepen and extend its service to the bibliographical community by helping scholars incorporate bibliographical and book-historical methods into their own research and teaching,” said RBS Director Michael F. Suarez, S.J. “I am humbled by the trust that the Foundation has placed in our organization – and deeply gratified by its ratification of our core mission of bibliographical education.”

 

“I expect that these fellowships will sow the seeds for some of the most exciting work from the next generation of humanistic scholars,” commented Michael Winship, Professor of English at the University of Texas at Austin. “This Mellon Foundation grant is wonderful news! It will ensure that graduate students and early career academics have an opportunity to be exposed to the theories and methodologies of bibliographical practice.”

 

Twenty Mellon Fellowships will be awarded in the spring of 2013. The deadline for application to the program is December 1, 2012. More information about the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography is available at:   http://www.rarebookschool.org/fellowships/mellon
