Textual Culture is a cross-period, interdisciplinary field of enquiry focus=
ed on the production, circulation, and use of texts conceived in material, =
discursive, and economic terms. It brings together several strands of exist=

rse analysis, and reader/audience study. This one-day symposium, intended a=
s an exploration of the continuing development of these research traditions=
 and the relationship between them, follows the highly successful Textual C=

 of Research (M.Res) degree in Textual Culture at the University of Stirlin=
