Ecdotica 4 and a Call for Articles and Reviews

The fourth issue of Ecdotica, a journal on Textual Studies edited
jointly by the Dipartimento di Italianistica of the University of
Bolonia and the Centro para la Edición de los Clásicos Españoles, has
just been published. The table of contents of the four numbers issued
so far and further details are shown on
(provisional web).

One of Ecdotica's main goals is to find common points and contacts
between the continental traditions and the Angloamerican schools of
Textual Scholarship. Thus, in Ecdotica we have published essays by
Paul Eggert, David C. Greetham, John Lavagnino, David Parker, Peter
Robinson and Peter Shillingsburg, and others by Roger Chartier,
Umberto Eco, Daniel Ferrer, Hans Walter Gabler, Roland Reuss or
Cesare Segre.

In order to keep moving in the same direction, we are wishing to
consider submissions of articles and book reviews. The articles
submitted should always have a broad scope, since they should address
scholars from different fields. We particularly appreciate surveys
and articles on the state of the art on specific issues or areas such
as those that have been recently dealt with in this list or in lectures:

Markup as theory of text
What is the point of book history?
Texts as cultural objects
Earliest photographic facsimiles
Uncovering the Scholarly Edition
Copyright and Scholarship
Evidence of Reading, Reading the Evidence

We are prepared to consider the publication in Italian or Spanish of
updated versions of outstanding essays originally written in English.
We also appreciate books which are worth reviewing.
