Periodical Formats in the Market: Economies of Space and Time, Competition and Transfer
This special issue offers contributions selected from the 9th ESPRit conference hosted by the DFG Research Unit 2288 ‘Journal Literature’ and the Ruhr University Bochum. They address a wide range of phenomena from mass-market periodicals to niche publications in the smallest print runs. One approach to describe the commodification of periodicals within the increasingly differentiated capitalistic print media market with both niches and mass segments is to pursue their ‘life’ as a history of successful or failed adaption to this market. However, we understand periodicals in the market only as a starting point to explore the cultural significance of the format, temporality, materiality, and visuality of relations of transfer or competition within and between print products.
