A dis­cur­sive per­spec­tive on Wikipedia: more than an ency­clopae­dia?
BuchcoverThis book pro­vides a con­cise yet com­pre­hen­sive guide to Wikipedia for researchers and stu­dents of lin­guis­tics, dis­course and com­mu­ni­ca­tion stud­ies, redress­ing the gap in research on Wikipedia in these fields and encour­ag­ing schol­ars to explore Wikipedia fur­ther as a plat­form and a medi­um. Draw­ing on Herring’s sit­u­a­tion­al and medi­um fac­tors, as well as relat­ed devel­op­ments in (crit­i­cal) dis­course stud­ies, the author stud­ies the online ency­clopae­dia both the­o­ret­i­cal­ly and empir­i­cal­ly, exam­in­ing its ori­gins, pro­duc­tion and con­sump­tion before turn­ing to a dis­cus­sion of its soci­etal sig­nif­i­cance and function(s). This book will be of inter­est to Wikipedia schol­ars from a range of dis­ci­plines, as well as those with a broad­er inter­est in lin­guis­tics, dis­course stud­ies and the dig­i­tal human­i­ties.

Mar­gin­al notes: social read­ing and the lit­er­al mar­gins
BuchcoverMar­gin­al Notes: Social Read­ing and the Lit­er­al Mar­gins offers an account of lit­er­ary mar­gin­a­lia based on orig­i­nal research from a range of unique archival sources, from mid-16th-cen­tu­ry France to ear­ly 20th-cen­tu­ry Tas­ma­nia. Chap­ters exam­ine mar­gin­al com­men­tary from 17th-cen­tu­ry Chi­na, 18th-cen­tu­ry Britain, and 19th-cen­tu­ry Amer­i­ca, inves­ti­gat­ing the rep­u­ta­tions, as reflect­ed by atten­tive read­ers, of He Zhou, Pierre Bayle, Samuel John­son, Thomas Warton, and Sir Wal­ter Scott. The mar­gin­al writ­ers include Jacques Goho­ry, Mary Astell, Hes­ter Thrale, Her­man Melville, the young daugh­ters of the Broome fam­i­ly in Glouces­ter­shire, and the patrons of the library of the Huon Mechan­ics’ Insti­tute, Tas­ma­nia. Though mar­gin­a­lia is often pro­scribed and fre­quent­ly hid­den or over­looked, the col­lec­tion reveals the endur­ing pow­er of mar­gin­a­lia, con­clud­ing with stud­ies of the ethics of anno­ta­tion and the res­ur­rect­ed life of mar­gin­a­lia in dig­i­tal envi­ron­ments.
