Call for Papers

THE JOURNAL OF AYN RAND STUDIES is a non-partisan, semi-annual,
interdisciplinary, double-blind peer reviewed academic periodical
dedicated to the discussion of the life, work, and legacy of the
novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand. We are indexed and abstracted---in
whole or selectively---in MLA International Bibliography, MLA
Directory of Periodicals, Political Science Abstracts, International
Political Science Abstracts, The Philosopher's Index, Sociological
Abstracts, and Social Services Abstracts.

We are currently looking for essays on the literary and pop cultural
influence of Ayn Rand. Essays that deal with Rand's impact on such
fiction writers as Erika Holzer, Kay Nolte Smith, Robert Heinlein,
Karen Michalson, and others would be a welcome addition to the
literature. We especially encourage submissions from those working in
diverse literary and philosophical traditions outside of Rand's
Objectivist system of thought.

For example, our newest volume---Spring 2002---features a lead essay
from one of the most important voices in contemporary Continental
thought: the Lacanian philosopher, Slavoj Zizek.

You can find abstracts of this issue---and all of our issues---along
with contributor biographies, style guidelines, and subscription
