Reimagining Textuality
Textual Studies in the Late Age of Print
Edited by Elizabeth Bergmann Loizeaux and Neil Fraistat

Reimagining ‘the text’ in the electronic age

What happens when, in the wake of postmodernism, the old enterprise of bibliography, textual criticism, or scholarly editing crosses paths and processes with visual and cultural studies? In Reimagining Textuality, major scholars map out in this volume a new discipline, drawing on and redirecting a host of subfields concerned with the production, distribution, reproduction, consumption, reception, archiving, editing, and sociology of texts.

Reimagining Textuality includes essays by Jerome J. McGann, David Greetham, Johanna Drucker, Mary Ann Caws, Charles Bernstein, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Gregory Ulmer, Stuart Moulthrop, Morris Eaves, Joseph Grigely, Daniel Ferrer, Tim Hunt and Henry Schwarz.

“A terrific collection. By asking the contributors to ‘reimagine textuality,’ the editors set out to reimagine the methods, objects, and goals of textual scholarship.”
—Michael Groden, co-editor of The Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism
