This special issue originates from the seventh annual conference of the European Society for Periodical Research (ESPRit) I was entrusted with hosting in Paris on ‘Periodicals In-Between: Periodicals in the Ecology of Print and Visual Cultures’. The event took place between the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Inalco and Paris-Sorbonne University in June 2018. A bilingual venue, it brought together young and advanced scholars and discussed the complex parts played by periodicals in a rich array of cultural and scientific settings and milieus from numerous points of view: history of literature, art history, press and media, visual studies, comparative literature, theatre studies, scientific cultures, translation and reception studies. A variety of serial publications were considered: reviews, magazines, parts, supplements, pull-outs, journals, annuals, anthologies, book series, newspapers, even a radio broadcast. This special issue proposes a few select contributions developed into research articles. By presenting them and recalling the conference’s main arguments and themes, the introduction offers an overview of investigations, and highlights some of the hypotheses significant for periodical studies today.
