We have not been updating the blog in recent years but hope to rectify that in the months ahead. Many projects have been taking shape behind the scenes and we want to let the public know about those.
To begin with, Paideuma‘s back issues are now archived on Jstor (link). There is at present a delay between publication and archiving so our most recent issues are still print only.
Another important change: beginning with volume 44, Paideuma began publishing an annual symposium. The first was planned with former editorial assistant Jill Hughes and subsequent editorial assistants have played a crucial role in determining the topic and inviting participants.
One of our goals at the outset was to expand the range of contributors to the journal and to widen its horizon beyond that of Paideuma‘s original, Poundian commitments. We are now in the process of editing our fifth symposium and feel that the roster of poets and scholars who have participated and the perspectives they have opened up marks the initiative as a success. Details on these recent and forthcoming issues can be found on the Paideuma blog (link), but here is an overview of our five symposia.
