The University of Tulsa sponsors a number of academic and literary journals. In addition, several TU faculty edit academic journals not directly housed on our campus.
Journals housed on the TU campus often offer opportunities for graduate students to assist with their production as either paid or unpaid editorial assistants. Graduate students interested in assisting with any of the journals listed below should contact the journal’s managing editor directly to learn more about available opportunities.
Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature, the first journal devoted solely to women’s literature, has for 32 years published groundbreaking articles, notes, research and reviews of literary, historicist and theoretical work by established and emerging scholars in the field of women’s literature and feminist theory. From its inception in 1982, Tulsa Studies has been devoted to the study of both literary and nonliterary texts — any and all works in every language and every historical period produced by women’s pens.
For nearly 45 years, the James Joyce Quarterly has been the flagship journal of international Joyce studies. In each issue, the JJQ brings together a wide array of critical and theoretical work focusing on the life, writing and reception of James Joyce. Our goal is simple: to provide an open, lively and multidisciplinary forum for the international community of Joyce scholars, students and enthusiasts.
The MJP is a multi-faceted project, intended to become a major resource for the study of the rise of modernism in the English-speaking world, with periodical literature at the center of this study. Its historical scope has a chronological range of 1890 to 1922 and a geographical range that extends to English language periodicals, wherever they were published. With magazines at the center, the MJP also has a generic range that extends to the digital publication of books directly connected to modernist periodicals and other supporting materials for the study of these periodicals. The MJP is a joint project of Brown University and The University of Tulsa.
