Subject: the impact of impact, and the fate of texts
Many here will be interested in Stefan Collini's "Impact on the
humanities: Researchers must take a stand now or be judged and rewarded
as salesmen", in the Times Literary Supplement (TLS) for 13 November,
with comments following, at
and the correspondence that follows in the TLS for 20 November, esp the
letter from Philip Davis (Liverpool). Collini's piece is likely to
disappear very soon, since the issue following is published.
Note also in the TLS for 20 November a fine piece by Jerome McGann, "Our
textual history: Digital copying of poetry and prose raises questions
beyond accuracy alone", pp. 13-15.
