Novel: A Forum on Fiction is accepting submissions. Founded in 1967 at Brown University, Novel is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the best new criticism and theory in novel studies. After several decades under the editorship of Nancy Armstrong, Kevin McLaughlin took over as the chief editor in Summer 2023. Novel holds to these general principles:
as long as there have been novels, there has been a need for critical scholarship to explain how novels should and do make and evaluate the foundational categories of modern life.
so long as novels continue to be written, literate populations will continue to dwell within categories inaugurated by its forms. We welcome submissions that address one or more of these concerns and use a novel or group of novels to do so. The essays we favor are relatively self- conscious about the theoretical and historical framework that informs their critical argument, so long as that argument uses fiction to challenge the historical narrative or theoretical assumptions that are brought to bear on it. Submissions should be between 7000-9000 words (inclusive of footnotes but excluding works cited), in accordance with MLA style (9th ed.). Please send submissions and inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The ODPS supports UT students and alumni interested in applying for prestigious national and international scholarships and fellowships. Some of these opportunties allow applicants to apply directly for the fellowship or scholarship. However, other scholarships and fellowships require an applicant to be endorsed (or nominated) by their academic institution such as the Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships. In these instances, applicants will go through the UT endorsement process.
UT students and alumni should identify scholarships that align with their academic and professional interests. Review the mission, eligibility requirements, and selection criteria of each opportunity. Applicants are strongly encouraged to share their intent and request assistance with their applications from the ODPS staff.
