Libraries, Literatures, and Archives

Not only does the library have a long and complex history and politics, but it has an ambivalent presence in Western culture – both a site of positive knowledge and a site of error, confusion, and loss. Nevertheless, in literary studies and in the humanities, including book history, the figure of the library remains in many senses under-researched. This collection brings together established and up-and-coming researchers from a number of practices – literary and cultural studies, gender studies, book history, philosophy, visual culture, and contemporary art –with an effective historical sweep ranging from the time of Sumer to the present day. In the context of the rise of archive studies, this book attends specifically and meta-critically to the figure of the library as a particular archival form, considering the traits that constitute (or fail to constitute) the library as institution or idea, and questions its relations to other accumulative modes, such as the archive in its traditional sense, the museum, or the filmic or digital archive. Across their diversity, and in addition to their international standard of research and writing, each chapter is unified by commitment to analyzing the complex cultural politics of the library form.

Werewolf Histories

Werewolf Histories

Today, werewolves are primarily known through films: as humans who change into wolves under the influence of the full moon. Although this is a recent image, werewolves have a long, fragmented and discontinuous history. Werewolf Histories is the first academic book in English to address European werewolf history and folklore from antiquity to the twentieth century. On the basis of mostly new source material, varying from archaeological finds, demonological tracts, witchcraft trials, slander suits and nineteenth - and twentieth - century legends, its contributors cover the most important European werewolf territories, ranging from Scandinavia to Germany, France and Italy, and from Croatia to Estonia. Werewolf Histories calls for a more sophisticated, contextualised, and differentiated approach and hopes to be contagious enough to spawn more of its kind.

In April 2003, the Public Record Office and the Historical Manuscripts Commission merged to form The National Archives, a new organisation to cover both public records (government and the law courts) and private archives. This is, therefore, the last annual report to cover the work of the Public Record Office. (Please note: the work of the Historical Manuscripts Commission in 2002-03 is covered separately in the HMC annual review for this period).
