Submission Guidelines

JASAT welcomes manuscripts 15-25 pages in length on various aspects of American culture—e.g., history, literature, popular culture, critical theory, technology, gender, race and ethnicity, and the arts—preferably with an emphasis on Texas, the South or Southwest. We also accept poetry submissions that focus on the same cultural issues and are rooted in the same geographic region.

Submissions are accepted for review anytime during the year, though the deadline for our next issue will be January 1. All submissions must be in a Word document, follow MLA or APA style (based on field of study), and are to be submitted to John Schulze: Please use JASAT submissions in the subject line.
