Reviewing for Textual Cultures

The endeavor of Textual Cultures 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. Textual Cultures is committed to reviewing a wide range of works across these and other disciplines.


Textual Cultures features three distinct forms of reviews:

  • Essay Reviews (1750-2000 words)
  • Short Reviews (750-1250 words)
  • Mini Reviews (250-word reviews, published on the website only)

If you are interested in reviewing for Textual Cultures, please contact the book review editors and attach a copy of your c.v.
