My choice for Inside Higher Ed‘s Readers’ Choice Awards for best academic book published this year:

From the University of Minnesota Press:

“By examining the association between photography and embalming—both as aesthetics and as mourning practices—Margaret Schwartz theorizes the connections between the body and the image and outlines a new politics of representation.”

To vote for my choice, please go to Twitter and like my tweet Dec. 7-13. Anyone who ends up voting for the winner gets entered in a drawing for the book!

I personally cannot wait to read this book.
