Proposal for a special edition of the journal TEXT Technology:
"Exploring 'Webtextuality:' What Makes the World Wide Web a Unique Textual
As the World Wide Web has become the most prevalent form of digital
publication and expression over the past five years, the question "What is
a World Wide Web text?" has become proportionately problematic. TEXT
Technology is, therefore, interested in publishing an interdisciplinary
consideration of the present meanings and problems associated with
"webtextuality" in a special issue dedicated to this matter.
In particular, TEXT Technology hopes to receive articles that attempt to
define webtextuality by placing it in dialogue with other forms of
electronic and traditional text production and analysis.
Each submission should in some way address the unique ways
that the World Wide Web is used to create, analyze, store or translate
texts and meaning. Essays should also specifically address the ways that
new textual forms made available by the World Wide Web modify, challenge,
or integrate versions of "traditional" and electronic text types
including, but not limited to, verbal texts, visual texts, animation and
Interested authors--both academic and professional--should submit 2-page
abstracts by May 15th. Completed manuscripts are due September 15th.
Please direct all correspondence regarding this special edition to:
