In December 2022, the European Society for Periodical Research will move its news and mailing list service to Google Groups. The Listserv mailing list will no longer be active.

Please join our Google Group if you wish to receive information about our annual conferences, new issues of the Journal for European Periodical Studies and other news concerning ESPRit. Subscribers can also use the Google Group service to exchange information, ask questions, or share new publications with the periodical research community.

In order to join, please follow the instructions below. Subscription to the ESPRit mailing list is open to anyone with an interest in periodical research, whether they are registered members of ESPRit or not. Should you wish to become more actively involved in the Society, please go to our Membership page.

To join the Google Group:

  • Navigate to ESPRit - Google Groups
    (alternatively, you can search for This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. on https://groups.google.com/)
  • On the group’s page, click “Join Group”.

More detailed instructions are available here.
