New books from BC alumni

BC alumna Emily Bloom has published The Wireless Past: Anglo-Irish Writers and the BBC, 1931-1968 (Oxford University Press, 2017), the first book-length study of Irish literary broadcasting on the BBC. Drawing upon unpublished radio archives, this book shows that radio broadcasting, rather than prompting a break with literary history and traditional literary forms, in fact served as an important means for reinterpreting the legacies of oral and print traditions. A book event at Columbia University’s Heyman Center for the Humanities on Apr. 27 at 6:15 p.m. will celebrate the publication of The Wireless Past as well as the publication of Expelling the Poor: Atlantic Seaboard States and the Nineteenth-Century Origins of American Immigration Policy by BC alumnus Hidetaka Hirota.
