1-13 June 2021 – Watch & Comment at the conference website

The conference seeks to examine periodicals from the 18th to the 21th century within markets and their respective sociocultural, economic, and legal frameworks. The Victorian period is a special focus of the conference. Two main areas will be explored: economies of time and space, i.e., spatiotemporal aspects of the production, distribution, and reception of periodicals and similar serialized formats, and facets of competition and transfer between periodicals within localised and regional as well as international markets. For this purpose, the conference looks at periodicals as agents that react to sociocultural space configurations while simultaneously participating in their nascency, formation, appearance, and perpetual transformation.
