CFP REMINDER: MODERNIST MAGAZINES IN THE AMERICAS: POINTS OF DEPARTURE
Wednesday 12 December 2012, Rothermere American Institute, University of
Oxford, UK
http://www.poetry.brookes.ac.uk/modernist-magazines/

CALL FOR PAPERS – DEADLINE 1 OCTOBER 2012
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
modernistperiodicals 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.
Our plenary speakers are: Suzanne Churchill (Davidson College), Alan
Golding (University of Louisville), and Andrew Thacker (De Montfort
University).
