Jane Potter discusses Wilfred Owen on BBC Radio 4

On Thursday 27 October 2022, Dr Jane Potter from OICP appeared on In Our Time, presented by Melvyn Bragg. The R4 programme discussed the celebrated British poet of World War One. Wilfred Owen (1893-1918). Owen had published only a handful of poems when he was killed a week before the end of the war, but in later decades he became seen as the essential British war poet. His works such as Anthem for Doomed Youth, Strange Meeting and Dulce et Decorum Est went on to be inseparable from the memory of the war and its futility. However, while Owen is best known for his poetry of the trenches, his letters offer a more nuanced insight into him such as his pride in being an officer in charge of others and in being a soldier who fought alongside his comrades.

Publication of Is This a Book?

Now published by Cambridge University Press, the new volume by OICP Director Angus Phillips and Miha Kovač offers a fresh and lively discussion of the form and purpose of the book.

'The 21st century has been a time of huge change for the book, but it has left us with more questions than answers. However in this thought-provoking and informative monograph, Phillips and Kovač uncover what makes the book tick, both today but also over the deep expanse of reading history. They uncover the big questions around the book, whilst offering original answers to what, in an age of transformation, is so significant about this slippery but essential form. Is this a book? is the best single volume on the book there is.' Michael Bhaskar, Co-Founder of Canelo and author of The Content Machine

Remembering Chris Fowler

We are sad to share the news of the death of Chris Fowler (1956 – 2022) from the Library at Oxford Brookes.

Over the years Chris helped numerous staff and students in Publishing, offering invaluable advice and assistance whether around research skills or the relevant books and resources available in the library. She loved the special collections and we are fortunate to have a good variety of publishing-related archives and collections, including the Booker Archive and the Steve Hare, Peter Stockham and Jane Doe collections. She will be much missed.
