Reynolds (co-ed.): Minding Borders

Matthew Reynolds, member of the ICLA Committee on Literary Theory, has co-edited, with Nicola Gardini, Adriana X. Jacobs, Ben Morgan, and Mohamed-Salah Omri, Minding BordersResilient Divisions in Literature, the Body and the Academy. Published in “Transcript,” a Legenda book series edited by Reynolds, the volume, far from celebrating the crossing of borders, or dreaming of their abolition, traces their troubling and yet generative resilience; the contributors range comparatively across geography, politics, cultural circulation, creativity, and the structuration of academic disciplines, hoping that the analysis of borders in one domain may illuminate their workings in another.
