“Beyond Little and Big: Circulation, Data, and American Magazine History" (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: “Beyond Little and Big: Circulation, Data, and American Magazine History"
Author: Hefner, Brooks E.
Abstract: Scholars of American periodicals in the modernist era often find themselves beset with a variety of categorizations: pulp and slick, big and little, commercial and avant-garde. Such characterizations derive from longstanding critical characterizations that have become ossified over time. Nevertheless, one of the greatest remaining unknowns in the history of American periodical culture is also among the most crucial pieces of information about magazine popularity, reach, and influence: circulation. This talk serves to introduce a new Digital Humanities project titled Circulating American Magazines, a resource that seeks to make publicly available for the first time detailed circulation information about American magazines from the 1860s through the 1970s.

"Mapping Circulation: Data and American Magazine History" (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: "Mapping Circulation: Data and American Magazine History"
Author: Hefner, Brooks E.
Author: Timke, Edward
Abstract: This presentation introduces our project, which should be well into its beta phase by the time of the conference. Our talk will highlight the source material and the potential research benefits for periodical studies scholars. We demonstrate some of the ways visualization tools might challenge or confirm long-held assumptions about magazine history as well as how circulation data can help map magazines’ reach over time.
