How does knowledge of authors and their intentions affect the interpretation of the texts we study? What is the significance of the intentionality of a text or its author? Is the author’s intention a valid concern? Questions of authorship and intention are central to textual scholarship, and this interdisciplinary seminar explores the role of authorship and intention from a wide range of perspectives, with topics ranging from author museums and genetic manuscript studies, to probability designs, legislative intent, epistemology and ethics.
