Canon Wars Revisited

I’m sure we all thought the "canon wars" of the late 1980s and early 1990s were over and done with, but here they are revisted in this weekend’s New York Times Book Review. Duke University Press is known for fairly cutting-edge work in American Studies and Literary Studies, so it’s safe to say we are not on Allan Bloom’s side in this debate. This fall we are publishing a collection about how the canon is defined in art history. Anna Brzyski has edited Partisan Canons, which will be available in a few weeks.
