Subject:        Remarking the Text

I thought members of SHAKSPER might be interested in a conference that
I'm involved in organising at St. Andrews in July of next year. Please
feel free to contact me directly (

 ) if you would
like further information. I'd also appreciate if list members could
circulate the details to anyone they think might be interested.

Many thanks,
Andrew

Call for Papers

REMARKING THE TEXT

July 19th and 20th, 2001
University of St. Andrews, Scotland

Following the success of the Marking the Text Conference at Trinity
College Cambridge in 1998, this conference aims to facilitate the
ongoing discussion of textual criticism, editing, and the materiality of
the text.  The conference will explore the issue of textuality within
the broadest parameters, taking in relationships between writers,
publishers, printers, booksellers, and others and also attending to the
text as a physical object. The conference will not be period-specific in
its focus and will aim to encourage dialogue among specialists from a
diverse range of scholarly fields.

Topics for papers might include (but need not be limited to):

*       margins
*       lacunae
*       typography
*       textual distortion
*       markets
*       technology
*       underground publishing
*       handwriting
*       palimpsest
*       illustration
*       facsimiles
*       independent publishing
*       counterfeiting

Abstracts of about 500 words should be submitted by 31 October 2000 to
the reading committee at:
