This collection reconsiders and extends reception research in literary studies, book history, and media/cultural studies and marks out new directions for such work by reevaluating its methodologies and by examining not only traditional American literature but also women's, African-American, and multicultural literatures, popular culture, the ordinary reader, and the role of reception in the history of the book.
