CFP: POLITICS AND PERIODICALS

The 4th International Conference of the European Society for Periodical Research (ESPRit),www.espr-it.eu
10-11 September 2015, The Nordic Museum, Stockholm, Sweden
We seek to bring together current research on the connections between politics—most concretely, political or social movements—and individual or groups of periodicals of any period.
 
Professor Brian Maidment will offer an extended workshop on reading periodicals, politics and illustration between 1820 and 1860. Keynote lectures will be given by Professor Núria Triana Toribio and Marianne van Remoortel.
We welcome proposals that offer comparative cross-national perspectives as well as more local studies of European periodicals which may include but are not limited to
 
* Periodicals started by social or political movements
* Social or political movements invigorated by periodicals
* Periodicals devoted to political theory/political science
* Periodicals as party organs
* Politicians as editors/contributors
* Periodicals and political reputations
* Politicised conflict and controversy between periodicals
Please send proposals for 20-minute papers, panels of three or four papers, round tables, one-hour workshops or other suitable sessions and short biogs by 1 June 2015 to esprit@oru.se.
