CFP: The Latchkey: Journal of New Woman Studies

The editorial team of The Latchkey: Journal of New Woman Studies is interested in receiving new submissions of scholarly articles and book reviews for our upcoming issues. All scholarly articles will undergo double blind peer review; book reviews will be published at the discretion of the editors.  We accept submissions year-round and have a reasonable turn around time (usually no more than three months, often much less).  Submission Guidelines and further information about the journal, as well as our current issue, can be found at

The Latchkey is a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal devoted to the concept of the New Woman, covering the lives and writings of New Women authors and figures, the representation of the New Woman in literature, culture, art, and society, proto-feminism and early feminist journalism, and current innovative scholarship on the New Woman. While the term "New Woman" originated in England, the cultural phenomenon extended beyond Britain. We wish to explore its presence (or reasons for its absence) and influence in other countries and across disciplines, and aim at covering both canonical and non-canonical New Woman figures and aspects. Starting with the next issue (anticipated for late spring 2011), The Latchkey is merging with another Oscholars journal, The Michaelian, currently edited by Sharon Bickle. The Latchkey will keep its name and focus on the New Woman, while appreciating and benefiting additionally from The Michaelian’s interests and expertise in the poetry and culture surrounding Michael Field (Edith Cooper and Katharine Bradley).

We are associated with the group of journals known as THE OSCHOLARS
