It's Official: The Ephemeral History of Perfume is Out!
English Dept. Secretary Linda Terry, Assistant Prof. Holly Dugan, and Office Manager Constance Kibler.
It's official! Prof. Holly Dugan's The Ephemeral History of Perfume: Scent and Sense in Early Modern England is out from The Johns Hopkins University Press! University of Michigan Prof. Michael Schoenfeldt calls it "[a] wonderful piece of work that will engage a wide readership. The subject of scent is central to so many attitudes and opinions in early modern culture, and Dugan does a splendid job of reminding us of its importance to canonical and noncanonical works. I know of nothing quite like this book."
