Text and Reception
The Text and Reception strand brings together scholars in the humanities interested in the production, circulation and consumption of texts. Looking both at the texts themselves and their means of creation the group investigates the multiple ways meanings are created, ranging from manuscript production on scrolls, through the printed book to digital media.
Scholars in the group also share a broad interest in the responses to texts whether they be texts of classical antiquity, the Bible, books of the renaissance or the work of contemporary writers. Researchers involved in the group collaborate with Centre for Print History and Culture, Writing West Midlands, The Typographic Hub, and Library of Birmingham among others.
