LEO is looking for NEW BOARD MEMBERS

TXT Call for papers: The authority of text

We all know that written words have power. It is less clear where this power comes from and how it can be exercised. Does a printed book have greater authority than a digital book? Does the increasing amount of text published online reinforce or change existing notions of authoritative texts? What have been the changes in “publishing power” throughout history?

These are some of the questions TXT would like to address in this year’s issue. TXT is the annual magazine published by the students of Book and Digital Media Studies at Leiden University. It is concerned with texts in all their different guises, how they have evolved through history, and how they affect our society. The relationship between text and authority can be approached from various perspectives ranging from political to cognitive to technical. We invite academics from all disciplines to contribute to this discussion.

Please send your abstract (200-300 words) to txtmagazine@outlook.com
