Centre for Textual Studies

The CTS is devoted to scholarly research in the fields of textual studies and history of the book, and to the emerging technologies that support them.

These fields include:

  • bibliography
  • textual criticism
  • scholarly editing
  • genetic criticism
  • adaptation studies
  • the sociology of bibliography and texts
  • book history
  • periodical studies.

The CTS encourages research that strengthens the ties among these related fields and that draws on advanced electronic technologies for research and presentation.

The CTS provides technical, methodological, theoretical, practical and administrative support for research projects associated with the CTS. It assists researchers seeking funding for such projects, and supplies basic instructions in technical information related to the design and implementation of electronic scholarly research sites in literature.
