SubStance is now published by Johns Hopkins University Press. It is a major interdisciplinary journal with a reputation for excellence, known for fostering new forms of thinking about literature and promoting a dialogue between contemporary theory and a multifaceted outside.

We proudly introduce a digital platform of the publication. Consistent with the journal’s modus operandi, it features hybrid work that generates challenging conceptual frameworks, work that represents something more than a style, or, rather, truly a style: a creative way to address and express ideas or concepts, to push literary thought and thought about literature into new territories.

Journal Supplements
