CALL FOR PAPERS – DEADLINE 1 OCTOBER 2012

PLENARY SPEAKERS
Suzanne Churchill (Davidson College)
Alan Golding (University of Louisville)
Andrew Thacker (De Montfort University)

This one-day conference is hosted jointly by Oxford Brookes University and
the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford. Its remit is
to celebrate the publication of the second volume of Oxford University
Press's *Oxford Critical & Cultural History of Modernist Magazines: North
America 1894-1960*, edited by Peter Brooker and Andrew Thacker, and to
explore little magazines and their broader cultural contexts across the
Americas. Our intention is to stimulate a discussion of current issues,
methodologies and practices, and to consider new directions for modernist
periodicals studies.

This conference calls for papers (from postgraduates and from established
scholars) which explore points of departure in the study of modernist
magazines from the Americas. A broad range of topics and approaches will be
considered for presentations of no more than 20 minutes.

Possible topics might include:

Magazines, the city and modernity
Magazines and material cultures
Little magazines and mass media
Magazines and South American modernism
Little magazines in Canada
Magazines and the public sphere
Little magazines and canonical/non-canonical writers
Modernist magazines and race
Magazines and geographic space
Editorial trajectories and interfaces
Modernist magazines and performance
Little magazines, modernism, and politics
Magazines and digital humanities
