Project Essay Archive
In addition to writing short entries on approximately 100 selected keywords researched by members of the group, the Keywords Project aims to publish online a series of longer and more detailed studies of particular words, as well as wider discussions of method and intellectual context in keyword analysis.
Some of the papers posted here represent work in progress. Others are pre-publication author copies of work published in final form in the publications cited. We acknowledge particular support from the journal Critical Quarterly (published by Blackwell) in the development of such longer ‘keyword’ studies and theoretical discussion.
