The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914–1945 announces plans for a new podcast series created and helmed by its inaugural Podcast Editor, Michael McCluskey. Launching in September 2020, the podcast will present stories from the “space between” the two World Wars as well as the wartime years themselves. With regular episodes and an interview-style format, the podcast will focus on the people, places, technologies, and cultural trends of the 1920s and ’30s as well as details about life during the First and Second World Wars.

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.
