This page is designed as an online showcase of work currently being done by University of Washington students in the field of Textual Studies, and captures one type of "end product" of the Spring 1998 course in Textual Studies taught by Mona Modiano. Although the written work is only partially represented here, it would have been difficult to convey the entirety of the work done during the course--even if the site did fully represent our written efforts--as it involved interactions with three guest scholars (Peter Shillingsburg, David Greetham and Randall McLeod, or Random Clod, if you prefer), and frequent gatherings fueled by food and drink. There are some life events that resist translation into hypertext, yet we hope that those events positively influenced our written efforts.
The site is divided into three sections. The first deals with various issues in textual theory. Next, we have provided a sample of individual papers which explore some of these issues against particular texts. The third section serves as your springboard to other cyber-lands, most all relating in some way to Textual Studies.
