Studies in American Culture

Call for Submissions

Studies in American Culture welcomes the submission of essays on all
aspects of American culture and from all scholarly and critical
approaches. We especially invite interdisciplinary studies of the
literature, language, visual arts, and history of the United States.*

Our diverse readership includes academics and non-academics who come
from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. We prefer fresh,
innovative essays that are informed by research and current critical
theories but which avoid alienating jargon.

Studies in American Culture is an annual publication of the Popular
Culture Association in the South and American Culture Association in the
South, which meet jointly in a conference each fall. Authors of
accepted manuscripts must join PCAS/ACAS (
<> ). Membership includes a year's subscription
to both SiAC and our other publication, Studies in Popular Culture.

To facilitate the blind peer-review process, submit your essay
electronically (in a Microsoft Word file only) to the editor, making
sure not to identify yourself anywhere in the text. We prefer
submissions not exceeding 6000 words, double-spaced in Times Roman
12-point font. Formatting according to the MLA Style Manual (1998) is
required. Content notes should be kept to a minimum. Black and white
illustrations may accompany the text. Authors should secure all
necessary copyright permissions before submitting essays requiring such
permissions. Queries are encouraged.

Submissions for the October 2005 issue (28.2) must arrive by March 15,
