Call for Papers: Book 2.0

The editors of Book 2.0 would like to invite articles dealing with the promotion (both digital and physical) of books and literature in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We are looking to bring together a wide variety of contributions within the confines of this topic. Particular focus could be placed on reading spaces, events and festivals, social media and marketing or emerging and alternative forms of literature that have grown in popularity over the period. We are also eager to look at the roles of the publisher, the author and the reader in generating and sustaining promotion and hope to encourage contributions spanning the gamut of current book markets, from trade right through to academic publishing. 

Please submit abstracts of no more than 200 words to Daniel Boswell ( )

Aims & Scope

Book 2.0 is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish articles and reviews about all forms of contemporary book production and design in an attempt to explore the theoretical space opened up by digital technology. Thematic concerns include adaptation, access and cultural mapping. It will explore innovations in technology, distribution, marketing and sales and book consumption, and in the research, analysis and conservation of book-related professional practices. Book 2.0 aims to provide a forum for promoting and sharing the most original and progressive thought and practice in the teaching of writing, illustration, book design and production, and publishing across all sectors.
