The editors of American Periodicals invite contributions on all issues
related to periodical studies, including theoretical interventions in
the field, studies of specific publications or historical figures, and
pedagogical approaches to working with periodicals. We are eager for
essays addressing everything from the earliest colonial newspapers and
nineteenth-century literary magazines to contemporary periodicals,
'zines, and electronic serials. In 2005 we will be publishing a
special guest-edited issue on the Modernist Little Magazine, and we are
also beginning work on a special issue for 2006-07 on comics and
cartoons. Recent topics addressed in American Periodicals include
Norwegian-American Christmas Annuals, the erotics of Oriental tales in
the early republican magazine, and the intersections between surrealism
and the fashion magazine.

Further information about the journal can be found at our website: American
Periodicals is also published electronically at ProjectMuse:

American Periodicals is published twice a year, and it is the organ of
