This chapter begins with a brief description of the author’s work as part of the Working Group for Digital Inquiry at Wisconsin. He describes the University of Wisconsin’s licensing agreement with the University of Michigan to begin working with files from the Text Creation Partnership (TCP), which contains over 27,000 items from early modern print. He then offers reflections about the nature of the text objects and populations of texts he is working with. He asks: What is the distinguishing feature of the digitized text—that ideal object of analysis considered in all its hypothetical relations with other ideal objects?
