Colonial and Early U.S. Newspapers and Their Editors

 

Panel organizer:  Karen Weyler, English Department, University of North Carolina at Greensboro kaweyler@uncg.edu

 

This panel is open to papers discussing any aspect of early U.S. and colonial newspaper culture.  I’m interpreting colonial newspapers broadly to include not only English-language papers, but also papers written in languages other than English and those published outside of British America.  Topics might include:  editing as writing; female newspaper editors; loyalist versus patriot papers; the relationship of colonial papers to metropolitan papers; the rise of local news sections; poetry corners; circulation patterns; the relationship of newspapers to weekly magazines, etc.
