The Year’s Work in Cemetery and Gravestone Studies: an International Bibliography compiled by Joy M. Giguere This annual feature of Markers, inaugurated in 1995, is intended to serve as an ongoing, working bibliography of relevant scholarship in the interdisciplinary field of Cemetery and Gravemarker Studies, including relevant works dealing with cenotaphs and public monuments and/or memorials. With significant exceptions, since 2004, it has restricted itself to English-language works in the modern era (i.e. post-1500), consisting of books, scholarly articles, and theses/dissertations. This year’s bibliography includes a new section: Book Reprints. This section includes a number of nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century monographs and pamphlets that, during 2009 or 2010, were digitally reprinted, either by university libraries or print-on-demand presses (such as General Books and Nabu Press). These texts, often hard to find, may serve as useful primary sources for researchers, and given their new availability, are listed here. Excluded from the bibliography are conference presentations, audio-visual materials, newspaper articles, book reviews, items in trade and popular magazines, compilations of gravemarker inscriptions, and a number of non-scholarly items of varying sorts. Also not included are articles found in Markers or in the AGS Quarterly. Bracketed notations in [bold] occur when possible where geographical locale is unclear. This year’s bibliography features materials published in 2008 but not covered in Markers XXVI, as well as work from 2009 and 2010; items published in 2010 after this listing was compiled will be included in next year’s edition.
