Recent Americanist scholarship has generated some of the most forceful
responses to questions about literary history and theory. Yet too many of
the most provocative essays have been scattered among a wide variety of narrowly
focused publications. Covering the study of U.S. literature from its origins
through the present, American Literary History provides a much-needed
forum for the various, often competing voices of contemporary literary inquiry.
Along with an annual special issue, the journal features essay-reviews,
commentaries, and critical exchanges. It welcomes articles on historical
and theoretical problems as well as writers and works. Inter-disciplinary
studies from related fields are also invited.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
