_American Periodicals: A Journal of History, Criticism, and
Bibliography_ invites 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. For consideration for
the 2007-08 issues, please send submissions by September 30, 2006.

In 2007 _American Periodicals_ will be publishing a special issue on
"Periodical Comics and Cartoons", guest edited by Lucy Caswell, with
Jared Gardner. We are calling for essays on any area of periodical
comics--including eighteenth-century political cartoons, nineteenth-
century illlustrated magazines, twentieth-century newspaper
comicstrips or serial comicbooks, or new media periodical comics and
possibilities. The essays should consider the difference a periodical/
serial context makes to the comics and/or the difference comics makes
to the periodical form. For consideration for the Special Issue on
Periodical Comics and Cartoons, please submit your essay by December
1, 2006.
