A four-week college and university teacher seminar for sixteen participants to explore the "golden age of magazines."

The rise of the "new modernist studies" has sparked a flourishing scholarly and pedagogical interest in the cultural and aesthetic complexities of the early twentieth century. This "return to the scene of modern" has been crucially fueled by the simultaneous rise of periodical studies--an interdisciplinary and international attempt to explore the so-called "golden age of magazines," when new technologies and the rise of mass culture created a radical transformation in print culture. This seminar will offer participants a chance to engage with these interlocking fields of study by exploring archival materials and experimenting with cutting-edge tools for digital research. Archival exploration and digital workshops will be coupled with lectures delivered by leading scholars, providing participants a unique opportunity to explore the vibrant print cultures that emerged in the early twentieth century as part of a global and densely interconnected modernity.
