CFP - THE ALMANAC: ASPECTS OF A GLOBAL GENRE (10/20-21/2011)

updated: 
Sunday, April 24, 2011 - 3:17pm
Professor Sandro Jung/Ghent University

While existing, published research on the almanac as an ephemeral annual publication has focused on a range of important characteristic features, it has not offered a comprehensive account that embeds the form within the changing print cultural contexts that determined its particular uses and material production. Above all, no global account of the almanac has been attempted yet, despite the fact that it was widely popular in Europe from the late Renaissance to the nineteenth century, especially in such formats as the muses' or comic almanacs of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Midwest Modern Language Association (M/MLA)

In the nineteenth century, travel became a serious business: with the explosion of travel guide books (Murray's and Baedeker's, most notably), Cook's excursion tours, organized itineraries through the P&O and other ocean liner companies, and other commercial efforts, the world began to open up for tourism is ways previously unknown. Where travel had in earlier centuries often been focused on the pleasure of "finishing" one's education through a Grand Tour, it now became accessible to many more people – at once a more playfully democratic pleasure and an enormously serious money-making venture for everyone from travel companies to local vendors at what we now think of a tourist traps.
