Genre Migration in Antebellum Popular Print Culture (Proposed MMLA Special Session--November 12, 2009-November 15, 2009)

updated: 
Wednesday, March 11, 2009 - 12:25am
Timothy Helwig/Western Illinois University

Antebellum popular print culture was notoriously fluid, as texts regularly migrated from one genre to another. For example, popular city-mysteries of the 1840s and 1850s drew upon sensational crime-reporting and were often first serialized in weekly story papers and then printed in a series of pamphlets before being compiled and sold as complete novels. This session invites papers that explore any aspect of genre migration during the rich emergence of the penny press, the black press, and the labor press in the pre-Civil War period. How does the migration of texts from one genre to the next affect their meaning and their reception? What common interests did these print sources share on questions of racial, ethnic, or class identity?

Dear Contributors

I got informed from the editors that more than 90 paper proposals had submitted an abstract for the publication "Skin, Culture and Psychoanalysis". Unfortunately it was not all of us who got a place within the publication. I am trying to gather the contributors who are interested in the topics on -racialization and the production of "national skins" and migration, critical whiteness and Psychoanalysis, to make another publication on this more specific themes. If you are interested in this "alternative" publication, please contact me.

Best regards

What is gained or lost when reading T.S. Eliot's _The Waste Land_ alongside early 1920s little magazines? Does such a reading enhance our perception of modernism? Please email 250-word abstracts by March 17 to Belinda Wheeler (bwheeler@siu.edu).
Please note: Papers can focus exclusively on Eliot's work or they use Eliot's work as a touchstone for their wider argument.
