Textual Cultures: Texts, Context, Interpretation
From its origins in 1983 as the collected papers of a small but innovative group of specialists in the area of textual editing, TEXT: An Interdisciplinary Annual of Textual Studies has led the way in opening the Anglo-American discussion in the emerging field of textual studies. Textual Cultures continues the tradition of TEXT but with an ever more inclusive and a multi-voiced approach not just to issues of textual editing and redefinitions of textuality, but to the notion of the diverse textual cultures in which these definitions and our approaches develop and evolve. The endeavor of Textual Cultures to investigate the meaning and implications of textuality is designed to widen our understanding of how new developments in fields like codicology, material philology, art history, musicology and cultural studies are redefining and integrating our notions of what constitutes a text in diverse cultural contexts.
Published in print twice a year, with a third, electronic issue to be added beginning in 2007, Textual Cultures invites essays from scholars around the world in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. All articles will appear also with abstracts in English.
