The Chair of Book Studies at WWU Muenster specializes in research on book history and publishing studies with a particular focus on the Anglophone world. We base our research and teaching activities on a broad understanding of book studies, which comprises printed and digital text forms and focuses on the various contexts of book production, distribution and reception (i.e. the cultural, social, economic, political and legal dimensions).

The city of Muenster is located in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, and is perhaps most famous for the Peace of Westphalia treaties signed in 1648. The city’s website provides more information.
