Reconstruction 4.4

November 8th, 2004 · No Comments

Reconstruction 4.4 has just been published on the web. It is a fine example of the web as an alternative environment for academic publishing — issn number, reviews and scholarly articles serving the needs of the academic community without incurring the prohibitive costs of paper publication and distribution.

In some ways, however, the journal has a distinctly old media feel. The courier font and white background to the pages, with the text of the articles extending almost to the margins of the frame give it a typewriter produced feel.

Hope I’ll actually have time to dig a little deeper and see if any of the articles provide useful perspectives on the issues raised in Steven Myer’s Irrestistable Dictation: Gertrude Stein and the Correlations of Writing and Science.
