Thesis Title

Contacts and Relationships between Italian and British Publishing Houses at the Beginning of the 20th Century


Dr Francesca Billiani & Professor Stuart Jones

Research Summary

My project aims to investigate the establishment and development of international relationships between Italian and British publishing firms in the lapse of time between 1890 and 1945, in order to assess the influence the Italian and the English publishing industry had on each other. Considering both the editorial and literary side of the co-operation, the study will highlight the original contributions of both parts and the role played by authors, publishers, editors, literary agencies and translators from the two countries.
