Giles Bergel
Giles Bergel is Arnhold Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer in the Department of English at University of California, Santa Barbara. He received his PhD from Queen Mary, University of London in 2004, and works in the field of book history, conceived broadly as the history of texts and their readers, with a specialism in eighteenth-century cheap print. He has published an article in Worlds of Print: Diversity in the Book Trade, edited by John Hinks and Catherine Armstrong (Oak Knoll/British Library, 2006) in the British Book Trade History Conference’s ‘Print Networks’ series, on print and provincial civic formation in the mid-eighteenth century. His current projects include a study of issues in the mark-up of engraved lettering and facsimile script, and an electronic archive of the ballad The Wandering Jew’s Chronicle, in association with the Early Modern Center’s English Ballad Archive, at UCSB.
