The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914–1945 is the annual peer-reviewed journal sponsored by The Space Between Society.

NOW AVAILABLE:  2019 General Issue including 15th Anniversary features


After five years as Editor, Janine Utell will step down upon the publication of the 2020 issue of The Space Between.  The new Editor will be announced in June 2020.


The Space Between will now include reviews of new editions of neglected works from the space between. Since these works are, by definition, little known, reviews should include a brief synopsis of the primary text as well as evaluation of any critical apparatus. Reviewers are encouraged to comment upon how a new critical edition would work for teaching, or how a recently recovered work might be situated alongside other more well-known texts. They should be 1000-1250 words in length and follow MLA style guidelines.  Prospective reviewers are encouraged to contact Book Review Editor Liz Evans, as are presses with titles for review.


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.
