RSA Journal

RSA Journal (Rivista di Studi Americani) is the official journal of AISNA (Italian Association of North American Studies). It publishes research and scholarship in all aspects concerning the language, literature, history, politics, society, cinema, and culture of the United States, and it invites contributions by both members and non-members on the specific topics of the special sections as well as general essays. RSA is peer reviewed and appears annually.

Submissions must be in English, must use the MLA Style Manual and Guide in Scholarly Publishing in text, notes, and bibliography, and must be no longer than 40.000 characters maximum (including spaces, notes, and bibliography). They must be accompanied by a 200-word abstract and a separate cover sheet bearing the author’s name, address, telephone number, email address, and affiliation.

Submissions are blind reviewed; the author’s name should not appear anywhere in the manuscript. RSA reviews submissions with the understanding that they have not been submitted concurrently to another journal. Please send essays as MS Word attachments to the Generale Editor, Valerio Massimo De Angelis. The deadline for next issue (no. 29, to be published in the Fall of 2018) is April 30.
