What is [alt]periodicals?

While researching Novel Nostalgias, I became aware of how difficult it can be to locate and obtain nineteenth-century anarchist, socialist, and other radical publications. What remains of these local and regional newspapers and magazines are scattered across the U.S. and are often housed in sub-optimal archival conditions. These publications demonstrate that experimental political and cultural thought thrived at the end of the nineteenth century. Here I hope to begin the process of bringing together these various resources. In keeping with the spirit of these publications, however, I feel very strongly that these resources should not sit behind a paywall.

If you are interested in receiving updates about this project or in assisting me with its development, please complete this linked form.

Over the course of the next year, I will compile a list of links to any open access archives that already exist. You will be able to find a complete list of links on this page. Stay tuned for updates in the months ahead.
