Scott Trudell Guest Edits RESTORATION Journal

February 6, 2019

Assistant Professor Scott Trudell recently guest edited a special issue of Restoration journal. 

Restoration: The Intermedia Restoration was published in Fall 2018, and includes essays from Sharon J. Harris, Stephanie Koscak, Thomas Ward, and Amanda Eubanks Winkler.


From Scott Trudell's website:

"Our aim is to extend the interdisciplinary conversation in media studies back in time, before the nineteenth century and later periods to which it is typically bound. The English Restoration—a period of media novelty upon media novelty, from periodicals and novels to genre painting, opera, and a newly cosmopolitan stage—warrants a fuller role in this conversation. The essays in this issue speak very nicely to each other, showing how the concept of intermediation helps to describe the extensive collaboration and competition among media that we see in dramatick opera, sung and recited neoclassical verse, engraved playing cards, and other Restoration texts and art forms."
