Critiquing Criticism: From the Ancient to the Digital

‘Critiquing Criticism: From the Ancient to the Digital’

We are very pleased to announce the publication of MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities volume 10 (2015) ‘Critiquing Criticism: From the Ancient to the Digital’.

MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities is an open-access electronic publication forum intended to allow researchers to present initial findings or hypotheses such as might, at a more advanced stage, become eligible for publication in established scholarly journals. As such it will be of particular interest to postgraduate researchers, though established scholars are also invited to submit papers.

The volume is available online.
