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 thirty-five 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 by Germaine Greer, 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.

My plans for the journal are meant to foster the journal’s role in strengthening these various links: between generations of scholars, between eras of scholarship, and between regional or national traditions of women’s writing.
