ith Lucy Bond and Stef Craps (eds.). Memory Unbound: Tracing the Dynamics of Memory Studies. Oxford: Berghahn, hb 2017, pb 2018.
'Memory Unbound is exemplary of the research and writing of the "third wave" of memory studies. It heralds a new departure in keeping with the transforming effects of new technologies of communication, and conveys the energy and excitement attending the precipitous emergence and rapid development of this new realm of scholarship.”
- Patrick Hutton, University of Vermont
'This is a great book—provocative, timely, and thoughtful. It proposes a future for memory research that finds a place for new investigators to embed their ideas.'

With Stefan Helgesson (eds.). Institutions of World Literature: Writing, Translation, Markets. Abingdon: Routledge, hb 2015, pb 2018.
‘This book makes a signal contribution to debates about world literature because, for the first time and to great effect, it places the concept of the institution at the center of the conversation. The essays collected here ask how the market, the publishing house, and the university shape both the making and the reading of literary works. No longer simply containers and conduits, these institutions emerge as important actors in the history of world literature. In the tension between work and system, Institutions of World Literature generates methodologies for the future.’
- Rebecca Walkowitz, Rutgers
‘A valuable and genuinely wide-ranging contribution to the burgeoning canon of world literature criticism, that not only historicizes but also importantly applies the core concepts to a range of writing from different regions and languages, and energetically links the key debates to ongoing questions in the sociology of the book.’
- Elleke Boehmer, University of Oxford
‘Timely addressing terminological and methodological issues as well as presenting illuminating case studies, this volume engages with the latest developments in the fast-evolving field of world literature … boldly venturing into literary territories hitherto almost uncharted from a world literature perspective, thorough in its scholarship, but always wearing its learning lightly, this is a must for anyone interested in where literary studies is at right now.’
