Authorship in Context. From the Theoretical to the Material
Edited by Kyriaki Hadjiafxendi and Polina Mackay
New York, Palgrave Macmillan
2007, 256 p.
This book maps the terrain of Anglo-American authorship as it shifts from a theoretical to a more material approach to its study in contexts recognized as key to its development: the nineteenth-century literary marketplace, twentieth-century experimentalism and postmodern culture. Gender and (post)colonial issues around authorial identity and literary work are further explored in relation to publishing policies, graphic media, and the Internet.
