(There is a saying in London which runs “You wait for ages for a bus and then two come along together”.)
2018 has been a good year for our subject-area of Literary Archives. At the start of the year there was no book-length publication on literary archives, and by the end of the year there were two.
In July 2018 we announced the publication of the collection of essays entitled The future of literary archives, published by Arc Humanities Press and Amsterdam University Press, with contributions from several SLA members.
And then in November 2018 we announced the publication of the special Literary Archives edition of the ICA journal Comma, published by Liverpool University Press.
I would like to thank all the SLA members who contributed to these two publications and helped to make 2018 such a good year for our Section. Best wishes to all for the December holiday season.
Chair / Président of SLA
