    University of Toronto Quarterly (UTQ) is currently seeking submissions. Established in 1931, UTQ publishes innovative and exemplary scholarship from all areas in the humanities. The journal welcomes articles, in English or French, on art and visual culture, gender and sexuality, history, literature and literary studies, music, philosophy, theory, theatre and performance, religion, and other areas of the humanities not listed here. As an interdisciplinary journal, UTQ favours articles that appeal to a scholarly readership beyond the specialists of a given discipline or field. The editorial board is especially interested, although not exclusively, in research that addresses topics of particular relevance to Canada. UTQ is therefore enthusiastic about submissions in Asian Canadian Studies, Black Canadian Studies, Canadian Literature, Canadian History, Canadian Studies, Diaspora Studies, and Indigenous Studies. The journal, more broadly, embraces research that engages interdisciplinary sites of scholarly inquiry, such as Affect Studies, Black Studies, Critical Disability Studies, Critical Race Studies, Digital Humanities, Environmental Humanities, Media Studies, Medical Humanities, Sound Studies, Transgender Studies, and emergent fields within the humanities. UTQ is published by the University of Toronto Press.

    Submissions should normally be between 7,500 and 12,500 words in length inclusive of footnotes and bibliographic material. Additionally, all submissions should be accompanied by an abstract (150-250 words). UTQ’s house style is based upon the MLA Handbook (7th edition), so please format submissions in accordance with MLA bibliographic guidelines. Substantive or discursive amplification should appear in judiciously selected footnotes. All text, including footnotes and Works Cited, should be double-spaced. Please do not justify right margins. 

    UTQ does not accept research that has already been published, nor does the journal accept submissions currently under consideration elsewhere. The journal does not publish poetry or fiction.

    Please anonymize submissions by removing all self-identifying information from the article, including acknowledgements and self-citations (reference your own scholarship as you would any other scholar). When saving the file, remove all personal information from the file on save. 

    UTQ commissions external reports to assess the quality of each submission. The journal receives numerous submissions and only submissions that the editorial board deems most appropriate for the journal, and most likely to receive recommendations to publish from experts, are sent out for peer review. The review process is doubly anonymous. Authors should expect to receive a response in the form of an editor’s report that collates relevant and useful information drawn from 2 to 3 external reports alongside the internal comments of the editorial board. Peer review takes approximately three to four months.

    UTQ regularly publishes special issues on the range of subjects listed above. If interested in proposing a special issue and serving as its guest editor, contact the editor, Professor Colin Hill, at

    Please send all submissions and inquiries to

    Photo of Emma-Catherine WilsonFélicitations à Emma-Catherine Wilson, lauréate du Prix de presentation étudiante M. Jane Toswell 2022. Mme Wilson, qui a récemment terminé sa maîtrise à l'Université d'Ottawa, a présenté une communication lors des Mardis médiévaux 2022 intitulée " Translatio Studii et Imperii : English Cultural Politics during the Hundred Years War".

    Dr. Hannah Kirby Wood's dissertation, "Intersections of Voluntary and Involuntary Poverty: The Friars and the Lay Indigent in Late Medieval England, 1221-c. 1430" (University of Toronto, 2021), was awarded an honourable mention for the CSM's Leonard Boyle Prize for best dissertation in Medieval Studies for 2022.

    Dr. Wood’s dissertation addresses an important topic in a wonderful, interesting and wide-ranging way. Thanks to her, the development of voluntary poverty at the end of the Middle Ages must now be considered through the opposed prism of impoverishment of a part of society, social, theological and cultural History in a same spectrum of analysis.

    Congratulations to Dr. Wood!

    La thèse de Hannah Kirby Wood, "Intersections of Voluntary and Involuntary Poverty : The Friars and the Lay Indigent in Late Medieval England, 1221-c. 1430" (University of Toronto, 2021), a reçu une mention honorable pour le Prix Leonard Boyle du CSM pour la meilleure dissertation en études médiévales pour 2022.

    La dissertation de Mme Wood aborde un sujet important d'une manière merveilleuse, intéressante et de grande envergure. Grâce à elle, le développement de la pauvreté volontaire à la fin du Moyen Âge doit désormais être considéré à travers le prisme opposé de l'appauvrissement d'une partie de la société, de l'histoire sociale, théologique et culturelle dans un même spectre d'analyse.

    Félicitations à Dr Wood !
