Subject: World Shakespeare Congress: Seminar "Sa(l)vaging the New
Bibliography: The New Worlds of Editing"
In case word hasn't reached all interested parties (and with apologies
if it has and this is repetitious), below is copied the Call for Papers
for a seminar called "Sa(l)vaging the New Bibliography: The New Worlds
of Editing" that will take place at the World Shakespeare Congress from
16 to 21 July 2006 in Brisbane. The seminar is led by Suzanne Gossett
and me and the deadline for registering is 15 July 2005. The congress
website is at www.shakespeare2006.net.
Sa(l)vaging the New Bibliography: The New Worlds of Editing.
Leaders: Gabriel Egan (Loughborough University, UK) and
Suzanne Gossett (Loyola University Chicago, USA)
Bringing together editors (past, present or in contemplation) with those
who are theorising about texts, this seminar is about textual theory and
practice. The immediate focus is what (if anything) may be salvaged from
New Bibliography and what might replace it. Editing in the future is
likely to rest on a broader intellectual foundation than hitherto, and
accordingly the seminar's discussion of textuality will encompass such
matters as philosophical approaches to textuality, early modern
linguistics, national traditions and editorial practices, and literary
and cultural theory, as well as the practical implications of
conflicting theories of "work" and "text."
