CFP: Radical America: Revolutionary, Dissident and Extremist Magazines

For the second Network of American Periodical Studies symposium we are seeking papers that discuss American magazines’ political radicalism and dissidence; experimentalism; marginality; extremism; avant-gardism. Topics to be addressed might include the hand-printed, mimeographed, photocopied, homemade, short-lived, minority, dissident, banned, objectionable, radical, tasteless, amateur, arty, communist, fascist, sectarian, or religious magazines, usually found discarded in the American basement. Further topics of interest: Illustration and design; Networks; Legality; Persecution; Production and distribution; Access, Conservation; and preservation.
