Help Shape PMLA

Special features are clusters of essays on a topic of wide interest that appear under the rubrics Theories and Methodologies, which addresses a timely issue or recent work of scholarship, and The Changing Profession, which takes up new and emerging fields in the humanities. 

Under new procedures, each fall members will be invited to submit clusters of essays for the special features, and all submissions will receive thorough review and feedback. In keeping with the journal’s new statement of values, the PMLA Editorial Board encourages submissions that represent a variety of viewpoints and that seek to bring timely, emerging issues, areas of study, and works to the attention of the journal’s readership; to put scholars in dialogue with one another; and to expand the scope of the fields represented in the journal.
