Interview on scrapbooks in Transatlantica

I had just enjoyed a dinner conversation with Professor Claire Parfait, who was visiting NYC from the Universite Paris 13, and then came home to discover that her interview with me about Writing with Scissors has just appeared in Transatlantica: revues d’études Américaines / American studies journal — an online journal well worth exploring.
Claire is the author of the marvelously thorough The Publishing History of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, 1852-2002, and it was exciting to hear of her new work — researching the work of early African American historians, and their publishing histories. (Of course scrapbook maker William Dorsey read these works.)
The issue of Transatlantica has articles in French and English, not to mention some provocative NYC photos.
