Workshop Details

The final outcome of this workshop is two joint special issues of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies and English Studies in Canada, so we will eventually ask workshop participants to develop their presentations into full-length articles. Most sessions are 1.5 hours and include two presenters. We encourage participants to consult the schedule and get in touch with your co-panelists to share your ideas for presentation formats, think about points of connection, and perhaps exchange developing drafts.

We will ask all participants to submit draft material one week before the workshop to hmcgrego[at]ualberta[dot]ca. These drafts will then be shared with all participants through a Dropbox folder.
