Showcasing the Voices of Women in Literature Since 1982

Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature, the first journal devoted solely to women’s literature, has for forty-two years published groundbreaking articles, notes, research, and reviews of literary, historicist, and theoretical work by established and emerging scholars in the field of women’s literature and feminist theory. From its founding in 1982, Tulsa Studies has been devoted to the study of both literary and nonliterary texts—any and all works in every language and every historical period produced by women’s pens.

Tulsa Studies welcomes the submission of articles, notes, and essays on archival work and innovations in studying women’s writing. Submissions must focus on women and writing but can be from all time periods and places and on every genre. We particularly encourage work in feminist critical and literary theory. More . . .
