Atlantis considers original, unpublished scholarly research in the field of critical studies in gender, culture and social justice. Articles must be 7,000 words or less (including references). Suitable papers will undergo double-blind peer review.
Atlantis publishes creative work that is in line with the journal’s focus. Creative work should have a clear connection to gender, feminism, anti-racism, social justice or related topics. A wide variety of styles, genres, and forms are acceptable, and we are particularly interested in those that combine scholarly interests with creative approaches. Poems must not exceed two pages; short stories and creative nonfiction must not exceed 3,000 words. Literary submissions are reviewed by our Literary Editor, Asha Jeffers, and our Editorial Board.
Atlantis invites reviews of books related to our Calls for Papers or related to critical studies in gender, culture, and social justice more generally. This includes both scholarly and literary books. We consider reviews of single books as well as “review essays” of multiple, related books. In general, books must be recent (published within one year of the review request) or forthcoming. We are particularly interested in reviews of books by Canadian authors and publishers.
We publish critical book reviews. We do not publish descriptive reviews (summaries) or editorials. Critical book reviews explore how well the author achieves their stated purpose; strengths and weaknesses of the book; and how the book fits into the larger literary genre or academic field. See: Critical Book Reviews (Queen's University) for further guidance.
Reviews should be under 1000 words. Exceptions can be made for reviews of multiple books.
To propose a book review and/or request a review copy of a book, please contact Katherine Barrett (Managing Editor): email@example.com
