Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research
The Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research was established in October 1997 as an interdisciplinary unit aiming to combine traditional scholarly skills with modern technological methodologies in order to investigate various aspects of the history of the book and material cultures.
The Centre offers expertise in fields such as Medieval studies, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Victorian studies, the early twentieth century and postmodernism.
The Centre has developed a number of online resources focusing principally on nineteenth-century literature, including a database of fiction 1800-29, a bibliography of the novel 1830-36, and the electronic collection of variant editions.
The Database of Mid-Victorian Illustration combines research and technological innovation to bring illustrations of Victorian culture to wide audiences, including designers, publishers, broadcasters, film-makers and heritage organisations worldwide.
The scope of the Centre’s research is expanding in innovative ways with the University’s acquisition of the Cardiff Rare Books Collection. This collection of 14,000 items, ranging from fifteenth-century incunabula to twentieth-century private press books, offers unparalleled opportunities for scholarly research.
The Centre hosts two online journals: Romantic Textualities: Literature and Print Culture, 1780-1840 and the Journal of Illustration Studies.
