For a contributed volume on the influence of W.T. Stead on Irish journalistic practices, we seek essays examining the impact of New Journalism on Irish politics, culture, newspaper practices, and representations of journalism from the 1870s through the 1930s. Essays might consider editorial, typographical, and textual changes in Irish newspaper and periodical practices during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. We encourage essays that engage in wide cultural perspectives, exploring how Irish periodicals provide new opportunities and challenges for cultural researchers seeking to understand and analyze cultural phenomena, such as nationalist advocacy, progressive activism, sexual scandal, reading practices, national pedagogy, theatrical and political spectacle, and more.
