Description
Summary:In Early Modern Britain, new publication channels were developed and new textual genres established themselves. News discourse became increasingly more important and reached wider audiences, with pamphlets as the first real mass media. Newspapers appeared, first on a weekly and then on a daily basis. And scientific news discourse in the form of letters exchanged between fellow scholars turned into academic journals. The papers in this volume provide state-of-the art analyses of these developments.
Item Description:The papers in this volume were presented at the second Conference on Historical News Discourse (CHINED) held at the Kartause Ittingen (Switzerland), on August 31 and September 1, 2007.
