1st Annual Pulp Studies Symposium: Sensational Scholarship

James Madison University is hosting The 1st Annual Pulp Studies Symposium: Sensational Scholarship. The symposium will be held October 7th and 8th, 2016. Nestled in the Shenandoah Valley, James Madison University's Special Collections hosts one of the finest publicly accessible collections of pulp magazines in the United States, including a recent acquisition of over eighty issues of Street and Smith's romance pulp Love Story. There has been a recent explosion of scholarly interest in pulp magazines and popular print culture. This conference builds upon emerging scholarship in this exciting and expanding field. We are currently looking for presentation proposals related to methodologies of pulp scholarship, focusing on pulps from 1895 to 1955.
