In a field of study that has consolidated largely in Anglophone modernist studies, what and how is research being conducted on periodicals that have been produced and published in Latin America? 

How are the region’s periodicals regarded as sources of historical knowledge; as material and aesthetic objects; and as pedagogical tools? What are the values attached to them by their creators, readers, and researchers? How are magazines and periodicals in Latin America distinctive from those of/in other parts of the world? And how useful are methodological frameworks developed in Anglophone scholarship in Latin America and vice versa? What are the methodologies and vocabularies that scholars of periodicals can share? How can work in/on Latin America enhance and/or expand emerging paradigms in periodical studies? And what are the differences determined by working on such materials in different disciplines and regions of Latin America? 

Considering the periodical as an autonomous object of study as well as a gateway to local and transnational cultures and histories, this conference aims to interrogate ways of reading and researching magazines and periodicals in Latin America: to consider how these heterogeneous, intermedial and serialised forms traverse boundaries between high, middle, and low brow as well as those between nations and between past and present.
