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. 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.
