I haven’t really found a good place in any of the groups I’m a member of to post this query so I’ll post it here. I teach at a regional state university and while I get to teach in my “area” my area really is a generalist. General Education courses are a large part of […]
Do you have any favorite (digital) collections of SCW-related materials? Searching for public domain images for the header & group avatar, I was trying to think of good places to search. The V&A had a number of posters, but weren’t easy to download for image use. (Suggestions about our cover/group image, send them my way.) […]

April 13th would have been Seamus Heaney’s 78th birthday. I wonder if any Humanities Commons users have scholarship or teaching materials on Heaney that they’d like to share in the repository for others to use?
I look to the ways material text studies might be prompted by, and improve upon, thinking in new materialism. The result is that paper could be read for how histories and narratives seep into the paper record and require accounts of agentic materiality lest they be lost or muted. In what follows, I use stories about rag paper as points of departure for thinking about the material turn in both contemporary theoretical discourse and book history together. Both, I think, attempt to understand the meanings and effects of material actors. Taken together, however, they can provide greater insight into the meanings of texts as objects, and a more complete sense of what is in our archives. Finally, I argue that book history’s disciplinary habits of moving between a text’s material presence, or bibliographic code, and its linguistic code, might provide a model for literary critics pondering current theoretical work in new materialism and the agency of things.

The Russian State Archive of Socio-Political History (RGASPI) has digitized much of the Comintern’s materials on the International Brigades (fond 545).
