Authorship as cultural performance: new perspectives in authorship studies

Ingo Berensmeyer UGent, Gert Buelens UGent and Marysa Demoor UGent (2012) ZEITSCHRIFT FUR ANGLISTIK UND AMERIKANISTIK. 60(1). p.5-29
abstract
This article proposes a performative model of authorship, based on the historical alternation between predominantly 'weak' and 'strong' author concepts and related practices of writing, publication and reading. Based on this model, we give a brief overview of the historical development of such author concepts in English literature from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. We argue for a more holistic approach to authorship within a cultural topography, comprising social contexts, technological and media factors, and other cultural developments, such as the distinction between privacy and the public sphere.
