Book description

As more and more of our cultural heritage migrates into digital form and as increasing amounts of literature and art are created within digital environments, it becomes more important than ever before for us to understand how the medium affects the text. The expert contributors to this volume provide a clear, engrossing and accessible insight into how the texts we read and study are created, shaped and transmitted to us. They outline the theory behind studying texts in many different forms and offer case studies demonstrating key methodologies underlying the vital processes of editing and presenting texts. Through their multiple perspectives they demonstrate the centrality of textual scholarship to current literary studies of all kinds and express the sheer intellectual excitement of a crucial scholarly discipline entering a new phase of its existence.

Reviews

'… a collection of essays from noted authorities … with an informative introduction … a comprehensive description of the various modes of textual scholarship.'

Source: SHARP News

'In all, a neat introduction to textual studies that offers to the reader a range of ways to think critically about ancient, early modern, and modern texts, from scribal to digital. The volume is useful for those who wish to find ways to articulate and theorize historical and modern conceptions of texts and textual studies.'
