Call for Papers: Wisconsin English Journal Fall/Winter 2022 Issue (64.2)

The Wisconsin English Journal seeks original, well-researched, and intellectually rigorous essays written from diverse critical perspectives about texts from any time period or literary tradition. We encourage undergraduate submissions, submissions from those who have recently graduated, students pursuing a graduate degree, Ph.D. Candidates, and doctorate-level research scholars alike. We hope to have a diverse, vibrant collection of voices in this issue. 

The focus for this issue is on literary criticism, and we are especially encouraging work that explores lesser utilized forms of literary criticism (e.g. Biosemiotic criticism), but submissions on/utilizing other concepts of literary criticism will also be considered. We are also accepting all traditional submission topics at this time (e.g. rhetoric, composition, literature, poetry, book reviews, veteran studies, gender studies, literary criticism, etc.)

Examples of various types of literary analysis include, but are not limited to, the following:

Archetypal criticism
Cultural criticism
Feminist criticism
Psychoanalytic criticism
Marxist Criticism
New Criticism (formalism/structuralism)
New Historicism
Reader-response criticism
Biosemiotic criticism

Please visit the Wisconsin English Journal’s submission guidelines at: https://wisconsinenglishjournal.org/submission-guidelines or email the Editor at wi.english.journal@gmail.com

Deadline for submissions: September 1, 2022

We do accept submissions from outside of the state of Wisconsin and from outside the United States.
