Introducing a new Open Access journal for 2015.
The James Baldwin Review (JBR) is an annual journal that brings together a wide array of peer‐reviewed critical and creative work on the life, writings, and legacy of James Baldwin. In addition to these cutting-edge contributions, each issue contains a review of recent Baldwin scholarship and an award-winning graduate student essay. The James Baldwin Review publishes essays that invigorate scholarship on James Baldwin; catalyze explorations of the literary, political, and cultural influence of Baldwin’s writing and political activism; and deepen our understanding and appreciation of this complex and luminary figure.
It is the aim of the James Baldwin Review to provide a vibrant and multidisciplinary forum for the international community of Baldwin scholars, students, and enthusiasts.

The James Baldwin Review (JBR), an annual peer-reviewed journal, is seeking submissions for its second volume. An Open Access online publication, the James Baldwin Review will bring together a wide array of peer-reviewed critical and creative work on the life, writings, and legacy of James Baldwin. JBR publishes essays that invigorate scholarship on James Baldwin, catalyse explorations of the literary, political, and cultural influence of Baldwin’ writing and political activism, and deepen our understanding and appreciation of this
complex and luminary figure.
Each year the journal publishes an outstanding essay by a graduate student. The JBR welcomes submissions on all aspects of Baldwin’s life, but particularly welcomes essays that engage with the writer’s continuing relevance in the wake of the Ferguson, Baltimore, and other related riots in the United States.
It is the aim of the James Baldwin Review to provide a vibrant and multi-disciplinary forum for the international community of Baldwin scholars, students, and enthusiasts.
We accept submissions throughout the year but in order to be considered for volume 2, submissions must be received by January 1st 2016.
