| RSAP-L: Research Society for American Periodicals
innovative investigation of American periodicals is underway that the
ripe for scholars working in the area to have our own discussion list.
In it, we can continue the conversations that go on in conference
and use our virtual hallway to exchange information, notices, and calls
for papers; put together panels, post queries, and let one another know
about new books in the field. I hope we'll also take on more
conversations about the divergent uses of periodicals in literary and
historical studies, classroom use of periodicals, issues of canonicity
and popularity in periodicals, periodicals' role in consumer culture,
We construe "periodicals" broadly, to include
magazines, newspapers, special editions, gift annuals, amateur press
periodicals, children's magazines, religious periodicals, periodicals
in languages other than English, house organs, mimeographed
newsletters, small press periodicals, zines, etc.,
and of course extend our interests to magazinists and journalists,
who wrote or illustrated even occasionally for the medium, and their
organizations. We cover American periodicals from their origin into the
present; geographically, we range through the Americas.
RSAP-L is a
moderated discussion list open to all who wish to join in a scholarly
on American periodicals.
