Digital Defoe: Studies in Defoe and His Contemporaries welcomes articles exploring any area relating to Defoe and/or his contemporaries (broadly conceived). In addition to traditional scholarly papers (roughly 4000-7000 words), we welcome essays on fresh pedagogical approaches to the works of Defoe and other writers of his era.

We also encourage the submission of innovative digital and multimedia projects, as well as experimental non-peer reviewed essays.

Scholarly essays may be eligible for essay prizes awarded by the Defoe Society.
