Call for Submissions

Studies in American Culture


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.

The Editorial Board welcomes studies of art, music, theatre, political science, sociology, literature, history, or any other area related to American Studies. 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.

Typically submissions are between 5,000 and 7,000 words in MLA format. The journal follows double-blind, peer-review. The editor reviews all submissions to determine which ones to send to readers.

Our turnaround time from submission to decision varies between 3 to 4 months.  

Authors of essays accepted for publication must be members or must join our parent organization, the American Culture Association in the South.

Submissions for the October 2016 issue (37.1) must arrive by April 1, 2016.
