This volume explores the challenges and possibilities of research into
the European dimensions of popular print culture.Popular print
culture has traditionally been studied with a national focus. Recent research
has revealed, however, that popular print culture has many European dimensions
and shared features. A group of specialists in the field has started to explore
the possibilities and challenges of research on a wide, European scale. This
volume contains the first overview and analysis of the different approaches,
methodologies and sources that will stimulate and facilitate future comparative
research. This volume first addresses the benefits of a media-driven approach,
focusing on processes of content recycling, interactions between text and
image, processes of production and consumption. A second perspective
illuminates the distribution and markets for popular print, discussing
audiences, prices and collections. A third dimension refers to the
transnational dimensions of genres, stories, and narratives. A last perspective
unravels the communicative strategies and dynamics behind European bestsellers.This book is a source of inspiration for everyone who
is interested in research into transnational cultural exchange and in the
fascinating history of popular print culture in Europe.
