NEWS OF STEVE ROUD - ANOTHER PUBLICATION AT THE PLANNING STAGE!

This is part of the latest Traditional Song Forum circular from Martin Graebe -
Steve Roud and David Atkinson are planning another publication on Street literature. They write:
We are acutely aware that in the recent upsurge of interest in, and publication about, cheap print and street literature, the early modern period is getting a great deal of attention, and the nineteenth century is also being gradually opened up for scrutiny. But the gaping hole in our knowledge is the eighteenth century.
Our plan, therefore, is a new volume of essays, composed of a mixture of full chapters and shorter case-studies, on aspects of the subject in Britain and Ireland, which we hope will break new ground and be a welcome addition to the literature.
If anyone might be interested in contributing - please contact us. And if you know of someone else who might be interested, please spread the word.
