Samantha J. Rayner
Reader; Director of Studies; Director of Centre for Publishing; Deputy Head of Department, DIS.
I teach and write on publishing and book related topics, with special interests in publishing archives and publishing paratexts, bibliography, the culture of bookselling, editors and editing, bibliotherapy, and academic publishing. I have also taught extensively on English Literature courses and have specialisms in Medieval and Arthurian texts.
I enjoy collaborative and interdisciplinary project work, including knowledge transfer activities. I have been Chair for the Association of Publishing Education (APE), which works to foster links and shared practice between all publishing courses across the UK.
I am a member of the AHRC Peer Review Panel, and currently the Principal Investigator on the AHRC/British Library Academic Book of the Future Project (see http://academicbookfuture.org/ )
I am interested in proposals from potential PhD students wishing to undertake postgraduate studies in Publishing or Book-Related Studies, and am happy to discuss any research proposals prior to application. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss your future research career with the Centre for Publishing.
