Co-hosted with the Freie Universität, Berlin and Virginia Commonwealth University.
With this workshop, we plan to bring together a set of international scholars from all career levels working with magazines and similar printed media to discuss the possibilities and challenges presented by these sources. We aim to pay particular attention to the exclusions present in magazines, particularly but not exclusively along the lines of race, while simultaneously uncovering counternarratives, either through reading against the grain or as they exist within non-commercial and/or BIPOC-led publications. Additionally, we plan to attend to the ways in which magazines and similar printed media served as spaces to express and consume diverse and sometimes competing desires through images, written narratives, and personal contacts. Debates over bisexuality, the valorization of normative gender performance, and the age of consent were often linked to sexual desire, as well as longings for intimacies and worlds that did not yet exist.
