Reading as Democracy in Crisis: Interpretation, Theory, History

I’m pleased to announce that Reading as Democracy in Crisis: Interpretation, Theory, History is now going into production (Lexington Books, 2019). I’m hoping for an April 2019 release date, but the publisher will confirm that soon. The featured image to the left, by photographer Rebekah Rovira, is my proposed cover image pending publisher approval. Chapters include:
