Rethinking The Academy:

Typographic Conventions


Note: Links to full citations are marked with bold and italic and lead directly to the "Works Cited" page of this essay; the parenthetical citation can be the use of a last name ("Jerome McGann's Radiant Textuality") or other reference, such as 215.

You will need to use either your mouse button OR the back button of your browser to return to the text at the point of the citation, depending on your browser. However, these options are not interchangeable! See How to Navigate This Essay Without Getting Lost for more information on how to move around successfully in this text.


The following typographic conventions are followed throughout this essay:

Internal links to lexia that are formally included as "part" of this hypertext are marked in Bold; the title of the referenced lexia would be the text of the previous link, and would appear both at the top of the frame. Thus, browser readers could click on Demo to move to another "page," or "frame" of this essay.

Links that were not written specifically for this web, even if originally written by me, are always denoted in the same font as the rest of this article. For example, I might reference my syllabus for an on-line research paper course, which will then appear in the right hand window of the Kairos frame. Note that the font in this link has not appeared in bold face -- this is a typographic indication that this material, though referenced in the hypertext, is not formally "part" of this essay. It is for this reason that it will appear in a different window if clicked than text that is formally part of this essay.
