General Announcements

Announcing the new Digital Projects’ Review section

Textual Cultures editors are glad to announce a new section of the journal, starting from issue 16.1 (Spring 2023):

Under the direction of Isabella Magni, the journal will soon open a new section specifically devoted to the review of digital projects across the wide range of disciplines—codicology, material philology, literature, art history, musicology, cultural studies, etc.—represented in the journal. Reviews of digital projects will consider the project’s content, scholarly goals and objectives, importance and impact in the field, use of standardized technologies (coding/encoding languages, digital tools, platforms etc.), design and interface, usability (including intended audience, user experience etc.), and overall documentation.

Here you can find the guidelines for reviews. The first reviews will appear in the spring 2023 issue.

If you want to propose a project to review, write to Textual Cultures Digital Editor: isabella.magni@rutgers.edu

Greetham Prize

Founder of the first iteration of the Society’s journal, Text, David C. Greetham was for decades the heart of the Society’s intellectual pulse and fervor. His collaboration over the years with W. Speed Hill, Peter Shillingsburg, and Edward Burns was the cornerstone upon which the Society for Textual Scholarship grew and prospered. And his ardent participation in and support for the Society’s conferences over more than four decades was as heartfelt as it was exemplary. In honor of David’s energetic and loving advocacy for the Society, its journals, conferences and the numerous friends and colleagues he made throughout his years of textual studies, the Society is happy to name the Textual Cultures Essay Award for our dear friend David Greetham.
