Techno-Magism explores how British Romantic literature abuts and is organized around both print and non-print media. The book explores not only the print, pictorial art, and theater of early nineteenth-century England and Europe but also communicative technologies invented after the British Romantic period, such as photography, film, video, and digital screens.
Beautifully written and cleverly framed, Missions Begin with Blood reveals a troubling but insightful look at the redemptive suffering at the heart of the Jesuit enterprise on New Spain’s northern frontier.
Finalist, 2022 Victor Turner Prize

More than any writer in the Golden Age of Television, Reginald Rose took up vital social issues of the day—from racial prejudice to juvenile delinquency to civil liberties—and made them accessible to a wide audience.
