From roots in literary scholarship (I wrote my dissertation on Samuel Beckett), I moved to textual studies and book studies. In my definition of book studies it concerns the history of written communication, which is a history of text technologies and their social effects, from the advent of writing, through the invention of printing right down to digital text technologies. My main research focus is on the effects of the current move from paper to digital screens on (1) reading and (2) publishing (especially scholarly communication and academic publishing).
