American Quarterly looks for essays that contribute to our understanding of the United States in its diversity, its relations with its hemispheric neighbors, and its impact on world politics and culture. In addition to traditional scholarship, we include reviews of books, events, and diverse media, as well as items for the “Currents” and “Forums” sections of the journal. We accept submissions year-round, with a deadline of August 1 for our Special Issue.
The links above contain information on general guidelines as well as specific information about submissions for books reviews, event reviews and our annual special issue. Learn more about some of the additional forms of writing we publish.
