BOOK HISTORY is an area of interdisciplinary enquiry, drawing on the methods of Bibliography, Social History, Literary Criticism, and Cultural Theory. Its specific objects of study include literacy and reading practices, relations among publishers, authors, and readers, and media production technology.

THE CHB was established in 1995 as an international and interdisciplinary centre for advanced research into all aspects of the material culture of the text - its production, circulation, and reception from manuscript to the electronic text.

SERVING a community of over 30 scholars across several university departments, the CHB is today an internationally recognised centre dedicated to the promotion of Bibliography and Book History.
