Subject: Next NAPS symposium!
Dear Member of the American Magazines Network, I do hope that some of
you will be able to come to the next NAPS symposium that Victoria and I
are organising. This time it's in sunny (!) Brighton, on Friday May 20th
( & during the Brighton festival if you want to have a weekend of
culture and slightly unhinged anarchy) -- so I hope you'll be able to
join us at the seaside!
CFP: *Radical America: Revolutionary, Dissident and Extremist Magazines*.
For the second Network of American Periodical Studies symposium we are
seeking papers that discuss American magazines’ political radicalism and
dissidence; experimentalism; marginality; extremism; avant-gardism.
Topics to be addressed might include the hand-printed, mimeographed,
photocopied, homemade, short-lived, minority, dissident, banned,
objectionable, radical, tasteless, amateur, arty, communist, fascist,
sectarian, or religious magazines, usually found discarded in the
American basement. Further topics of interest:Illustration and design;
Networks; Legality; Persecution; Production and distribution; Access,
Conservation; and preservation.
