What books are made of

“What Books are made of. Scholarship and Intertextuality in the History of the Humanities”, in R. Bod, J. Maat & T. Weststeijn (eds.), The Making of the Humanities. Vol. III: The Modern Humanities (Amsterdam University Press 2014)

There is probably no greater joy in scholarship than seeing your first published academic article, in print. This is what happened last night. For a short abstract:

This paper focuses on different types of intertextuality to arrive at a new way of analyzing developments in scholarly method in the humanities. I argue that changing patterns of intertextuality (such as editing, extension, compilation, reference, and citation) are revelatory of changing styles of reasoning. Studying practical and conceptual shifts through types of intertextuality therefore opens a new perspective on the relation between scholarly ideals and practices.
You can find the article here and the full volume (open access) here. It all started with a way-too-long blog post written in a frantic gust of inspiration in May 2012.
