Literature in the Early American Republic
Annual Studies on Cooper and His Contemporaries
Literature in the Early American Republic is an annual, peer-reviewed journal that welcomes a wide range of submissions on the literary culture of the United States from the adoption of the Constitution in 1789 to the death of James Fenimore Cooper in 1851. We also seek submissions addressing (or establishing critical editions of) unpublished archival manuscripts (letters, diaries, poems, and other documents) of cultural or literary relevance to the period. Studies devoted to works by minority figures and other historically underappreciated writers, as well as articles dealing with the works and influence of James Fenimore Cooper, are central to our mission.
Please format essays in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition), especially sections 14.14–67 and the LEAR “House Style Guide.” As all submissions undergo double-anonymous review, the author’s name should appear only on the cover page. An author whose essay is selected for publication will be asked to provide a brief abstract and biographical statement. Whenever available, authors should use as their primary texts those scholarly editions approved by the Modern Language Association Committee on Scholarly Editions. For example, in the case of Cooper, authors should use those editions approved by the “Writings of James Fenimore Cooper” and published by AMS Press and SUNY Press.
We require submissions be made electronically as Microsoft Word documents attached to a single e-mail and sent simultaneously to Prof. Wayne Franklin and Prof. Jason Berger
