Periodical Studies: the state of the discipline. A plenary panel.
We also invite proposals for a concluding plenary panel to focus on the current ‘state of the discipline’ of periodical studies in a continent where its development has been strikingly uneven. The panel will seek to identify the main current research dynamics driving periodical studies in general, and will consider any obstacles to its further development - such as gaps in collections, higher education priorities, and the need to develop new forms of interdisciplinarity - and ways in which they may be addressed. Proposals that highlight efforts to develop periodical studies in states or regions where, hitherto, little interest has been shown in the field are particularly welcome. The working language of the conference is English and Greek. We welcome proposals from researchers at all stages of their careers.

Proposals of around 250 words (references not included) for 20 minute papers and a short CV (no more than 200 words) should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 31 March 2019.
