History of Text Technologies

About The Author

Stephanie Leitch

About The Author

 Developed in conjunction with an interdisciplinary research program at Florida State University, the History of Text Technologies series is dedicated to major works of new scholarship and theory in the area of the history of the book. It includes work that derives from material and analytic bibliography, paleography and epigraphy, history of authorship, history of reading, study of manuscript and print culture, and history of media, but its focus is on taking that more familiar knowledge in new directions and applying it in new ways. Like much of the most exciting work in textual studies for the last quarter century, it builds upon McKenzie’s call for a “sociology of texts.” This series moves from the analysis of texts as material objects to the analysis of texts as material agents. It is committed to recognizing that texts cannot be separated from the various and changing technologies through which those texts are created and then do the cultural work that they do. This recognition does not insist on technological determinism; rather, it maintains a programmatic focus on change rather than stability: changes in technology, changes in culture, and the changing relationship between the two.
