The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914-1945 is a peer-reviewed journal 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 issues of the period, including literary and cultural responses to the First and Second World Wars, are particularly welcome. Issues are published online annually every fall.  Potential contributors are invited to propose occasional special issues as well.

Additionally, The Space Between provides a forum for other forms of scholarly communication through its digital community.  Contributions in the form of notes, commentary, interviews, and digital humanities projects are encouraged.  Book reviews are also published continuously throughout the year, with a long review essay on a theme or topic of interest to the field included in the annual issue.

Full editorial guidelines are available at the journal site.  Submissions should be sent to Janine Utell, Editor, at janine [dot] utell [at] gmail [dot] com.  Contributors interested in book reviews or annual review essays should contact Geneviève Brassard, Book Review Editor, at brassard [at]up [dot] edu.
