[Inter]sections is an annual double-blind peer reviewed journal of American Studies (ISSN 2068 – 3472) indexed in the MLA Directory of Periodicals, Ulrichsweb, DOAJ, CEEOL, and EBSCO. [Inter]sections publishes academic articles, reviews, and interviews relevant to the field of American studies. We encourage our authors to explore the most recent scholarship, from a solid critical background and in conversation with relevant and challenging work from the field. Although we focus primarily on subjects that are grounded in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century, we do not exclude work that explores other time periods. The scope of our journal includes research in the fields of North American literature, history, visual culture, film and television studies, popular culture, political studies, race and ethnic studies, philosophy, gender and sexuality studies. The journal aims to encourage (but not impose) a transnational approach that places the North American space in dialogue with other cultural and political spaces. [Inter]sections also aims to encourage a wide variety of critical approaches and interdisciplinary dialogues. We are fully committed to providing full and immediate open access to all of our issues. We provide our readers with open access to the entire content of the journal upon publication. We do not request fees of any kind for access to any of our published articles, reviews, or interviews.

Please note that our next deadline for submissions is October 15, 2018. All submissions will be subjected to a double-blind peer review process. All accepted submissions will be included in [Inter]sections 21 (2018).

The language of the journal is English (US). Papers should be between 3,000 and 8,000 words (for book reviews, the suggested length is between 1,000 and 3,000 words), and written in accordance with the 7th edition of the MLA citation style. All submissions should also include an abstract, a list of 5-7 keywords, and a short bio. For more information, as well as access to our previous issues, please see
