The Periodical Press Seminar (linked to the ongoing ‘Periodical Press: From Paper to Digital’ Project is resolutely interdisciplinary and investigates the manifold forms/formats of the periodical press (broadly considered and inclusive of newspapers) published in the English-speaking world or in English outside of these areas. All periods are considered. The seminar meets 2 or 3 times a year, either around invited speakers or around ‘Periodical Press: From Paper to Digital’ Project members, to discuss recent research and new methodologies. The seminar is co-run by Bénédicte Deschamps, Stéphanie Prévost & Will Slauter.
