New publication of the edited volume ‘Reading Journals’

‘Reading journals’, ed. by Volker Mergenthaler, Nora Ramtke and Monika Schmitz-Emans

Publication date: 12 December 2021

This volume proceeds from the second international conference of the DFG Research Unit 2288 »Journal Literature«. The contributions examine periodicals from the late 18th to the early 20th century, taking as a methodological starting point the materiality of the published form and its potential to condition reception. The specific temporality and materiality of periodicals shape processes of generation and superimposition of meaning; here, both the conditions and consequences of these processes are explored. The connection between materiality, visual and temporal logics of format, and reading practices is the key focus of »Reading Journals: Coherence and Interruption«.
