Professor Alan Galey on winning the 2013 Fredson Bowers Prize from the Society for Textual Scholarship
“The forensic study of born-digital artifacts from bibliographic perspectives is a growing research focus for Prof. Alan Galey, whose research and teaching at the iSchool bridge the fields of book history, digital humanities, and analytical bibliography. What puts him at the forefront of this field is his innovative research on e-books. One of the results of his SSHRC Standard Research Grant funding has been his article “The Enkindling Reciter: E-Books in the Bibliographical Imagination” (Book History 15 (2012): 210-47), which just won the prestigious 2013 Fredson Bowers Prize from the Society for Textual Scholarship for the best article in that field published in the past two years. Prof. Galey was awarded a certificate and a $500 cash prize, which he has donated to theChildren’s Book Bank, a charitable literacy organization in Toronto.” You can find out more here.
