Materiality of the text

We play a particularly important role in the study of texts in their material dimension. We make major contributions to areas including:

  • manuscript cultures
  • the book trade
  • bibliography
  • scholarly editing and editorial theory
  • digitisation of manuscript and other texts
  • inscription of text in non-book contexts
