JNT showcases theoretically sophisticated essays that examine narrative in a host of critical, interdisciplinary, or cross-cultural contexts. Of particular interest are history and narrative; cultural studies and popular culture; discourses of class, gender, sexuality, race, nationality, subalternity, and ethnicity; film theory, queer theory, and media studies; new historical, poststructural, or global approaches to narrative forms (literary or otherwise); along with essays that span or subvert epistemic and/or disciplinary boundaries. 

JNT is multi-genre, multi-period, multi-national. Current submissions should address the intersection of narrative, history, ideology, and/or culture, all broadly defined.
