Dear Colleagues,

The Tolstoy Studies Journal, a peer-reviewed publication issued by the North American Tolstoy Society ​is accepting submissions for the 2018 issue beginning now and continuing until June 1, 2018.

We welcome scholarly essays in the 7000-8000 word range about a variety of topics that advance the study of Tolstoy. We want the journal to be as inclusive as possible and reflect a wide variety of voices. To that end, we encourage junior scholars (in the US as well as Canada and Europe) to submit their work. We also urge underrepresented scholars in the field to consider submitting. We welcome any and all approaches to Tolstoy, particularly any potentially underrepresented approaches, including, but not limited to gender/queer theory, disability studies, critical/race ethnicity theories. As always, we welcome interdisciplinary research encompassing literature and other disciplines like history, the visual arts and architecture, political science, philosophy, economics, non-Russian literary traditions, as well as new modalities like Digital Humanities and quantitative analysis.

We are also open to considering shorter essays (2000-5000 words) as research notes. These writings do not seek to shift the field in any particular direction, but complement scholarly knowledge and assist research at large.
Scholars interested in writing shorter pieces (1000-1500 words), being interviewed about their Tolstoy research, or who would like to discuss any ongoing projects they have, are invited to participate in our new blog, Tolstoy Commons:
A new call for submissions for personal reflections for the blog is also forthcoming.
If you have any questions or would like to submit, please get in touch with
