This one-day conference is hosted jointly by Oxford Brookes University and the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford. Its remit is to celebrate the publication of the second volume of the Oxford Critical & Cultural History of Modernist Magazines: North America 1894-1960 (edited by Peter Brooker and Andrew Thacker and published by Oxford University Press) and to explore little magazines and their broader contexts across the Americas. Our intention is to stimulate a discussion of current issues, methodologies and practices, and to consider new directions for modernist periodicals studies.
