Content Stinks! The Forms, Materials, and Institutions of American Periodicals

Friday 21st September
A21 Trent Building
This symposium seeks to challenge the narrow content-orientation of much existing periodicals scholarship by engaging with new, deeper and more complex contextualizations of these unique textual objects. In particular, it will showcase work that offers considerations of the American periodical from the perspective not of its content-providers but the perspective of the multiple human and nonhuman actors responsible for assembling and distributing what in the aggregate is a mass of literary material simply too large and various for conventional interpretive approaches.
