Inside Higher Ed: The New Twihards . . . . though it may run counter to the popular stereotype of Twilight’s audience (14 years old, misguided, breathless), a growing number of scholars are eager to offer their perspectives on the hugely popular novels and the cultural phenomenon they’ve engendered.
Early out of the publishing gate was Wiley, which last fall released the volume Twilight and Philosophy as part of the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series. Now the company has followed that up with Twilight and History, which marks the start of a new series on popular culture and history.
Read about Twilight and History’s editor, Nancy Reagin, who is professor of history and women’s and gender studies at Pace University.
