The Journal of Narrative Theory solicits submissions that address the intersection of narrative, history, ideology, and/or culture, all broadly defined. Of particular interest are narrative and history; cultural studies and popular culture; discourses of class, gender, sexuality, race, nationality, subalternity, and ethnicity; film theory and media studies; post-structural, postcolonial, and ecocritical approaches to narrative forms (literary or otherwise); along with essays that span or subvert epistemic and/or disciplinary boundaries. 

Founded in 1971, the Journal of Narrative Theory is a refereed, international journal published three times a year by the Department of English at Eastern Michigan University. Every third issue of the Journal of Narrative Theory is a special issue, which is edited by a guest editor and covers a specific topic relating to narrative. The Journal of Narrative Theory continues to follow the high standards set during its first five decades of publication by showcasing theoretically sophisticated essays that examine narrative in a host of critical, interdisciplinary, or cross-cultural contexts. The Journal of Narrative Theory is multi-genre, multi-period, multi-national. 

Manuscripts should follow the latest edition of the Modern Langauge Association Handbook. Required length is 25-35 double-spaced pages (6,500 minimum word count). Visit our website for more details and instructions on how to submit:
