Textual Cultures: Texts, Contexts, Interpretation is devoted to textual scholarship in all language traditions. With an expansive definition of text and textuality to include a variety of disciplines and materials, the journal proposes as well an exchange between critics interested in textual interpretation and specialists devoted to the analysis and preparation of those texts as documents or artifacts, e.g., editors, bibliographers, archivists, and digital humanists. This exchange also includes practitioners in numerous emerging and traditional fields of material studies that explore the production, reproduction, and reception of texts in their often multiple cultural contexts.

Textual Cultures continues the tradition of TEXT, the Society’s first journal (1984–2005), with an ever more inclusive and multi-voiced approach to issues of textual analysis, editorial practice and theory, (re)definitions of textuality, and the diverse textual cultures in which these matters and our approaches evolve.
