After five years as Editor, Janine Utell will step down upon the publication of the 2020 issue of The Space Between.  Applications are now being sought for the position of Editor.

Those interested should send a CV and letter of interest detailing relevant experience to Janine Utell by April 15, 2020.  The new Editor will be announced at the 2020 conference at the University of Virginia.


After three years of stellar service, Geneviève Brassard has stepped down from the role of Book Review Editor for The Space Between effective upon the publication of the 2019 issue.  We are pleased to announce that Elizabeth Evans has assumed the role of Book Review Editor.

Elizabeth F. Evans is Associate Professor of English at Wayne State University. Her interests include literature of the long twentieth century, modernist studies, cultural geography, gender studies, (post)colonial studies, and digital humanities. She is the author of Threshold Modernism: New Public Women and the Literary Spaces of Imperial London (Cambridge UP, 2019), which treats gender and race in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British and Anglophone literature. Liz is currently at work on three new projects operating at various scales: she is examining the cultural geography of writers of color in London at the height of empire through the work of several forgotten figures; she is using computational methods to map the intersection of gender and geography across a corpus of 10,000 digitized texts; and, in her current book project, she is examining airplanes and aerial views in British and Anglophone literature and culture. She has been very active in The Space Between, including service on the Society’s Advisory Board. She may be reached at

We offer deepest thanks to Geneviève for her service, and welcome Liz to this new role.


The Space Between:  Literature and Culture 1914–1945 is devoted to interdisciplinary scholarship on the period bracketed by the two World Wars. We are interested in approaches to texts of all kinds, including literary works, the visual arts, film, music, etc.  Research on lesser-known writers and artists and understudied topics of the period, including literary and cultural responses to the First and Second World Wars, are particularly welcome.

Issues are published on our open-access digital platform annually, in the fall of the volume year.  Submissions for general topics issues are always open and considered on a rolling basis.  Potential contributors are invited to propose occasional special issues as well.  See the Submission Guidelines for details.
