This forum considers how we locate editors through brief case studies of multiethnic periodicals from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A focus on editors raises new questions and prospects for making visible the often hidden craft of periodicals across a wide variety of communities, contexts, and periods. Each contributor to this forum offers a case study that challenges any easy generalization about how editors have collaborated, where editors pioneered new periodical forms, and how the craft of editorship invites or dodges our critical gaze in the archives. Together, these pieces chart challenges and opportunities for considering the cultural contributions, aesthetics, and forms of expression that transcend author-centric literary histories.
