Production of the latest issue of JNT, 51.1, has been delayed and as a result, the issue will reach subscribers later than expected. We at JNT sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at jnt@emich.edu.

JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory, founded in 1971 as The Journal of Narrative Technique, is a refereed, international journal published three times a year by the Department of English at Eastern Michigan University. Every third issue of JNT is a special issue, which is edited by a guest editor and covers a specific topic relating to narrative. JNT continues to follow the high standards set during its first four decades of publication; the newly focused 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 disciplinary boundaries. JNT is multi-genre, multi-period, multi-national.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and Eastern Michigan University’s decision to close campus facilities, the production of JNT may be delayed. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Please reach out if you have questions or concerns at jnt@emich.edu.
