Applications open on December 1, 2022 and are due 31 January 2023.
- How do periodical forms – or their iterations across time and space – suggest notions of currents and flow?
- How are flows of information contained, redirected, or impeded by the periodical press?
- How are periodical rhythms altered by economics, taxes, the health of the editor, the vagaries of the marketplace, etc.?
- How was the experience of war and other current events in distant geographic locales represented and contested in the periodical press?
- How is our study of the periodical press informed by de-colonial, pan-European, and/or transatlantic currents and perspectives?
- How have recent advancements in digital remediation of periodicals and newspapers affected the way we conceive of global, regional, and local periodical discourse?
- How might the idea of currency influence our study of individual titles or particular formats (e.g., monthlies vs. weeklies)?
- How did worker strikes, trade embargoes, pandemics, new scientific ideas, agitations for equal rights, etc., influence the shape of the periodical press?
- How was this reflected in the starts, stops, and adaptations associated with particular periodical titles?
- How did the periodical press respond to/construct ideas of xenophobia and protectionism?
- How is the “mainstream” in periodical publishing challenged or undergirded by divergent undercurrents/alternative publications from the resisting margins of counterculture (based on race, gender, sex, class, and locality), both within the UK and its colonies/dominions as well as across Europe and North America?
- How might Continental European and British periodical cultures be in synch or in oppositional relationship to each other?
- How might our scholarship engage with global economies, newspapers, travel, and international publication networks?
- How might it theorize crosscurrents between local and provincial papers, networks, and readerships?
- How are inclusion/exclusion, as well as differences in language and dialect (e.g., the representation of local/foreign accents), registered in the periodical press?
