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

Date
21/09/2018 (09:00-18:00)
Location:
A21 Trent Building
Description
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.

PSA Media and Politics Group Annual Conference 2018: Call for papers

Date
08 (10:00) - 09/11/2018 (16:00)
Location:
University of Nottingham
Description
Recent elections and referenda have thrown up some unexpected results - outside candidates have emerged rapidly to take power, and established politicians have suffered an unexpected decline or increase in support. Traditional institutions such as political parties and trade unions have experienced a revival in membership. Received wisdom on public opinion and political behaviour has been disrupted, not least assumptions about the political engagement of millenials. This conference will explore mediated communication of politics in the context of such instability and insurgency.
