9780299217846: Women in Print: Essays on the Print Culture of American Women from the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries (Print Culture History in Modern America)

Women readers, editors, librarians, authors, journalists, booksellers, and others are the subjects in this stimulating new collection on modern print culture. The essays feature women like Marie Mason Potts, editor of Smoke Signals, a mid-twentieth century periodical of the Federated Indians of California; Lois Waisbrooker, publisher of books and journals on female sexuality and women's rights in the decades after the Civil War; and Elizabeth Jordan, author of two novels and editor of Harper's Bazaar from 1900 to 1913.  The volume presents a complex and engaging picture of print culture and of the forces that affected women's lives in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Published in collaboration among the University of Wisconsin Press, the Center for the History of Print Culture in Modern America (a joint program of the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the Wisconsin Historical Society), and the University of Wisconsin–Madison General Library System Office of Scholarly Communication.

About the Author:

James P. Danky is director of the Center for the History of Print Culture in Modern America at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
Wayne A. Wiegand is the F. William Summers Professor of Library and Information Studies and professor of American Studies at Florida State University. 

Review:

"These essays communicate the passionate commitment to social justice of historical figures—like Belle Case La Follette and 1950s librarians in rural Wisconsin—and of the authors of the essays as well."—Erin Smith, University of Texas at Dallas

“Rarely has a collection featured this breadth of scholarship about so many relatively unknown women authors, booksellers, editors, journalists, librarians, and publishers. . . . Women in Print is, quite simply, an essential text for anyone interested in the lives and work of women in American literature.”—Jan Whitt, Journalism History
