        Subject: the impact of impact, and the fate of texts

Dear colleagues,

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.
