Announcement: TU Journals Free on Project Muse until June

We’re happy to announce that with the cooperation of Project MUSE, you’ll now be able to access current and back issues of TU’s acclaimed journals JJQ and TSWL for free through the early part of June.

Sean Latham, Director of the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities and Editor for The James Joyce Quarterly says “We hope this will make things easier for all those struggling to teach, learn, and do research in these trying circumstances.”

Founded in 1963 at the University of Tulsa by Thomas F. Staley, the James Joyce Quarterly has been the flagship journal of international Joyce studies ever since. In each issue, the JJQ brings together a wide array of critical and theoretical work focusing on the life, writing, and reception of James Joyce.

According to Jennifer Airey, Editor forTulsa Studies in Women’s Literature, “Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature was the first scholarly journal devoted solely to the study of women’s literature, and we remain one of the best known and well-respected journals in the field. We have a really broad scope – we publish articles on women’s writings from all nations and all time periods – so we have something to interest everyone. We also publish essays on little-known archives and digital tools for studying women’s literature, and personal essays on the experience of being a woman or studying women’s literature in academia.

Dr. Latham and Dr. Airey both hope having access to these journals might ease the burden on students and instructors so that they can continue research and coursework as smoothly as possible.

In response to the challenges created by the global public health crisis of COVID-19, Project MUSE is making scholarly content temporarily available for free on their platform. With many higher education institutions moving into an exclusively online learning environment for the foreseeable future, access to vetted research in the humanities and social sciences, from a variety of distinguished university presses, societies, and related not-for-profit publishers, will help to support teaching, learning, and knowledge discovery for users worldwide.
