New Literary History focuses on questions of theory, method, interpretation, and literary history. Rather than espousing a single ideology or intellectual framework, it canvasses a wide range of scholarly concerns. By examining the bases of criticism, the journal provokes debate on the relations between literary and cultural texts and present needs. A major international forum for scholarly exchange, New Literary History has received six awards from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.

Journal Details

New Literary History publishes essays on topics of theoretical significance within and beyond literary studies. The journal especially welcomes three 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 that engage with broad questions of literary history and literary-historical method, across and within discrete periods, languages, nations, and hemispheres; and
  3. 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.

Note that the journal receives a very large volume of contributions every year, and that our rate of acceptance tends to hover around 5 percent. For this reason we are unable to provide reader reports on most submissions. Endnotes are used rather than bibliographies, and Chicago style is preferred. Contributions of 6,000-10,000 words can be submitted by regular mail or email. NLH does not publish digressive endnotes.

Peer Review Policy

New Literary History requests and requires original research and discourages (but does not prohibit) double submission. Preliminary review of essays (i.e. desk review by the editor) takes place in the initial weeks following submission, and the authors of desk-rejected essays are notified by e-mail generally within three weeks. Essays not desk rejected are sent out for double-blind peer review.  In order to be considered for peer review, submissions must 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; and/or engage with broad questions of literary history and literary-historical method, across and within discrete periods, languages, nations, and hemispheres; and/or address general theoretical or methodological questions that are of interest to scholars in a wide range of fields. Essays must exhibit a high quality of writing and thought, rigorous and thorough research, and a substantial grounding in the subfields to which they are contributing. Once reader reports on essays are returned, the editor makes a decision based on the recommendations of referees and the editor's own assessment. Essays may be rejected outright, returned with a request for revision and resubmission, or, more rarely, accepted with little or no revision. We ask our readers to return their reports within six weeks of receipt. The journal makes its best effort to notify authors of all decisions within six months of submission.
