Chapter Summary

The author's particular engagement with the Salman Rushdie Archive introduces two distinct observations. First, The Rushdie Archive is among the first archival collections to document the evolution of the intellectual and imaginative practices of a twentieth and twenty-first century author as they progressed from a combined reliance on material inscription and typewriting technologies, to, at present, an almost exclusive dependence on the fluidity of digital composition. Most succinctly, the Salman Rushdie Archive is revolutionary; and, it is revolutionary from a combination of intellectual and historical perspectives that reach deep within the archive and across a breadth of academic and historical interests. Second, dating from the 1990s, some literary scholars began to engage in what they called New Philology and to apply its strategies to the interpretation and re-interpretation of texts.
