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.
