Sussex Centre for American Studies

Network of American Periodical Studies

The Network of American Periodical Studies (NAPS), co-founded and directed by Dr Sue Currell, is devoted to the study of periodicals in the Americas in any time period, especially in their transnational circulation. The Sussex Centre for American Studies hosted the biannual NAPS symposium in 2016 at the Keep, with the theme "Radical America: Revolutionary, Dissident and Extremist Magazines." The event was co-sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library, the British Association for American Studies, the Sussex Centre for Modernist Studies, and Northumbria University. Proceedings from the symposium were published in a special issue of Radical Americas. Follow the network's ongoing activities here.
