Studies in American Culture welcomes the submission of essays on all aspects of American culture, including studies of the literature, language, visual arts, and history of the United States, and from all scholarly and critical approaches.
Because we receive so many submissions on literature, the Editorial Board especially welcomes studies of art, music, theatre, political science, sociology, and history. We will consider any essay that explores an interesting dimension of American culture but are particularly eager to see submissions that approach their subjects from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Our diverse readership includes academics and non-academics from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. We prefer essays that engage in sophisticated analysis while avoiding alienating jargon.
Submissions for the October 2008 issue (31.1) must arrive by April 1, 2008.
Electronic submission ONLY.
To facilitate our blind peer-review process, submit your essay electronically (in a Microsoft Word file) to the editor (email@example.com), making sure not to identify yourself anywhere in the text. We prefer submissions not exceeding 5000 words, double-spaced in Times Roman 12-point font. Formatting according to the MLA Style Manual (1998) is required. Content notes should be kept to a minimum. Black and white illustrations may accompany the text. Authors should secure all necessary copyright permissions before submitting essays requiring such permissions. Queries are encouraged. The editor reserves the right to make stylistic changes on accepted manuscripts.
