The Latchkey: A Journal of New Woman Studies is soliciting articles, book reviews, short essays on teaching resources, and brief biographical sketches of New Woman writers and cultural figures.

A peer-reviewed and open-access online journal, The Latchkey seeks a balance between established and emerging scholars devoted to current and innovative scholarship on the concept of the New Woman, the lives and writing of New Women authors and figures, representations of the New Woman in culture and society, sports and travel, and fin-de-siecle proto-feminism.

While the term “New Woman” originated in England, the cultural phenomenon extended beyond Britain. In past issues, The Latchkey has explored the phenomenon and influence in other countries and across disciplines.  We especially welcome submissions that undiscipline this area in Victorian and fin-de-siecle studies and diversify the canon of New Woman fiction.
