Texas Studies in Literature and Language invites essays, including some at monograph length, that contribute to our understanding of a significant subject. Essays should be stylistically precise and rich and critically contextualized, whether in carrying forward the contemporary criticism of the subject or in questioning its terms. For occasional issues devoted to special topics, we call for papers well in advance. We do not accept notes (generally, manuscripts of less than seventeen pages), and we accept reviews only in the form of essay-length, well-argued articles examining the basic assumptions involved in contemporary critical thinking about a given topic. Please note we will review only one submission per author per year. Before an essay is approved for publication, it must receive strong recommendations from at least two readers and from the editors. We try hard to keep this process down to three months, although sometimes various exigencies delay our response. Acceptable formats for essays are the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, or the MLA Style Manual, 3rd edition. Manuscripts must be double-spaced throughout, and notes should be numbered consecutively and grouped on pages separate from the text. Blind submission form, please. Manuscripts should be sent via e-mail to: TSLL@austin.utexas.edu. Receipt of a manuscript is acknowledged.

Texas Studies in Literature and Language is indexed and/or abstracted by Academic Search Premier, Humanities International Complete, Current Contents: Arts and Humanities, IBR (International Bibliography of Book Reviews), IBZ (International Bibliography of Periodical Literature), Literary Criticism Register, MHRA Annual Bibliography of English Languages and Literature, MLA Bibliography, and Sociological Abstracts.
