The Space Between, like its predecessor Precursors and Aftermaths, is a refereed journal that is published annually. For general topics issues, articles on non-canonical figures or understudied issues are especially appreciated, as are articles that address responses to the First or Second World Wars. The editors are especially interested in innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to texts of all kinds. Publication is annual and is co-sponsored by the Space Between Society and Monmouth University. For general information on the journal, contact the editor, Kristin Bluemel, at

The Space Between will publish reviews on books that represent various disciplines’ approaches to the culture of the space between the wars. Correspondence for the review editor should be addressed to Debra Rae Cohen at the Department of English, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC, 29208.
