Since its inception in 1971, JNT has provided a forum for the theoretical exploration of individual narrative texts and of narrative more generally. Current essay submissions should address the intersection of narrative, history, ideology, and culture all broadly defined.

Recent issues have included essays concerned with literary theory, cultural studies and marginalized literary figures and texts.
