CFP: "Archives and Popular Culture," A Special Issue of the Journal of Popular Culture

The Journal of Popular Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

Conventional conceptualizations of the archive as the repository of authoritative historical documents, assembled and maintained by institutions of the state, have increasingly been challenged. Formation of repositories, in public and private, of materials created by individuals who lack epistemic authority has been of interest not only to historians looking for traces of their lives.
