Combining theoretical and empirical approaches, this volume offers a wide-ranging survey of periodical research today. It illustrates the shift from content-related investigations and archival recovery to multidisciplinary analyses which consider, for instance, how magazines, newspapers, and other serial print products shape our opinions and help us to form like-minded communities. International specialists explore periodicals as relational artefacts, highlighting editorial constellations, material conditions, translation, design, marketing, and consumption of newspapers and magazines from the late seventeenth to the twenty-first century. A must-read for academic and interested readers who wish to explore new and relevant ways to analyze periodicals.

New book series: Studies in Periodical Cultures

Studies in Periodical Cultures (SPC) published by Brill contributes to the bourgeoning field of periodical studies, exploring magazines, newspapers, and other forms of serialized media in (trans)national contexts. Research into periodicals is of high interest to many because of the medium’s pervasiveness and its enmeshment with the formation of cultural identities. This book series seeks to assess the role of periodicals for processes of cultural transfer and translation. It also promotes the ‘business turn’ in periodical studies and highlights material and legal frameworks, design, translation, marketing and consumption. SPC proposes to study periodicals less as autonomous objects, but rather as agents embedded in changing historical contexts.
Brill is a reputed international academic publisher since 1683 in the humanities and social sciences, which can boast of a thorough peer review process, high quality publications, the fastest turn-around time, a professional worldwide distribution network and state-of-the-art digital publications.
