Following the theme of this year’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, this panel seeks to explore what the forthcoming years of scholarship might hold for early modern studies. The two papers in this panel examine topics of renewed interest that promise to have a renaissance of their own in future years. Grace Ioppolo’s forthcoming collected works of Thomas Heywood promises to usher in a renewed interest in the playwright, and the Map of Early Modern London project’s goal to produce the first complete anthology of the mayoral shows will make these texts accessible to scholars and students in an open access digital format.

Current scholarship on twentieth-century periodicals is moving beyond the study of the ‘little’ magazine and avant-garde publications. Many mainstream and specialist periodicals, including tabloids, broadsheets, illustrated newspapers, illustrated magazines, fashion magazines, ‘slick’ magazines, women’s magazines, art periodicals, trade and specialist periodicals, pulps, reviews, and political and campaigning magazines have yet to receive sustained critical attention.
