Author Guidelines

New Literary History publishes essays on topics of theoretical significance within and beyond literary studies. The journal especially welcomes two types of contribution:

  1. articles that engage with literary and cultural theory, including concepts of period, genre, or style, questions of hermeneutics and the reading process, problems of representation, and the relations between literary studies and other disciplines;
  2. articles addressing general theoretical or methodological questions that are of interest to scholars in a wide range of fields. Contributors should bear in mind New Literary History’s international and intellectually diverse readership.

Endnotes are used rather than bibliographies. Chicago style is preferred. Contributions of 6,000-10,000 words can be submitted by regular mail or e-mail. NLH does not publish digressive endnotes.
