ON THE FUTURE OF ‘CARDIFF
The current issue of Cardiff Corvey:
Reading the Romantic Text is the last under that designation.
In order to reflect its widening remit and international presence,
the journal will be relaunched as Romantic Textualities:
Literature and Print Culture, 1780–1840 [ISSN 1748-0116],
as of the Winter 2005 (no. 15) issue. Romantic Textualities
will develop its role as a fully peer-reviewed journal and will
continue to publish every Summer and Winter of each year.
Textualities will carry three types of submitted publications:
Articles we would be most interested in publishing include
those addressing Romantic literary studies with an especial
slant on book history, textual and bibliographical studies,
the literary marketplace and the publishing world, and
so forth. Submissions for articles (5,000–8,000
words) should be sent to the Editor (Mandal@cf.ac.uk).
We also supply reports on ongoing research, in the form
of author studies, snapshots of research, bibliographical
checklists, and so on. This material is not peer-reviewed,
but provides a useful platform for scholars to disseminate
information about their collaborative or individual research
projects. Submissions for reports should be sent to the
As of Issue 15, we intend on carrying reviews of recent
publications relating to Romantic literary studies. In
the first instance, publishers of suitable texts or potential
contributors should contact the Reviews Editor (KillickPT@cf.ac.uk).
While the name
and visual appearance of the journal will change to reflect
its new function in Romantic-era studies, the critical focus
on bibliography, textual scholarship, and print culture will
remain the same—as the new title makes far more abundantly
clear. Information about projects based within Cardiff University’s
Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research will now be found
solely on the Centre’s website (http://www.cf.ac.uk/encap/ceir).
Romantic Textualities will continue to provide an archive of
all previously published articles, including those that appeared
under the Cardiff Corvey banner.
In the first instance, Romantic
Textualities will be accessible online @ http://www.cf.ac.uk/encap/romtext,
