The editors would like to invite contributions to a planned edited collection to be ready for submission to publishers in December 2005. Essays from scholars working in any aspect of print culture relating to the First World War are welcome, but we would particularly like to hear from those working on the publishing industries, reading communities and distribution networks of countries outside the United Kingdom.
Suggested essay topics might include: WW1 libraries; the effects of paper and personnel shortages; endangered supply routes; newspapers and magazines; censorship; the editing and commercialisation of war writers since the war.
Abstracts of no more than 400 words should be sent electronically to both editors: Dr Mary Hammond (e-mail address shown below) and Dr Shafquat Towheed (SSTowheed@aol.com)
