About This Journal
Founded in 2000 by David Siar and Crystal Bartolovich, Early Modern Culture strives to create something like the active and on-going inquiry of a good seminar. Hence, the journal publishes works-in-progress by major scholars in early modern studies, along with a set of responses from readers.
In 2016, Early Modern Culture merged with Upstart: A Journal of English Renaissance Studies. As a result, Early Modern Culture now publishes stand-alone essays, and book and theater reviews, as well.
Individual essay submissions undergo peer review by at least one external reader. In some cases, more reviews may be solicited. The publication of works-in-progress seminar essays is up to the discretion of the seminar editor(s) and journal editor.
