The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914-1945

Reviews and Review Essays

The Space Between publishes reviews and review essays on books and other media that represent various disciplines' approaches to the literature and culture of the space between the wars.  

Guidelines for reviewers are as follows:
  • Review length: a monograph, 1000-1250 words; an essay collection, 1250-1500 words; multiple works,  1250-1500 words
  • Reviews should follow MLA style guidelines
  • For proper style guidelines regarding information about the book(s) in the review header, refer to previous issues of The Space Between
  • Reviewers are encouraged to use language in a gender-inclusive manner, and to avoid language that might indicate forms of bias or noninclusivity.  In general, employ in writing reviews "the book," "the study," "the author," etc., rather than "he" or "she."  Authors are welcome to get in touch regarding their pronoun preference.  These will be followed.
Potential reviewers, as well as publishers interested in sending review copies, should direct all queries to the Book Review Editor Elizabeth Evans at


As of January 2020, after three years of stellar service, Geneviève Brassard has stepped down from the role of Book Review Editor for The Space Between.  We are pleased to announce that Elizabeth Evans will be assuming the role of Book Review Editor.

Elizabeth F. Evans is Associate Professor of English at Wayne State University. Her interests include literature of the long twentieth century, modernist studies, cultural geography, gender studies, (post)colonial studies, and digital humanities. She is the author of Threshold Modernism: New Public Women and the Literary Spaces of Imperial London (Cambridge UP, 2019), which treats gender and race in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British and Anglophone literature. Liz is currently at work on three new projects operating at various scales: she is examining the cultural geography of writers of color in London at the height of empire through the work of several forgotten figures; she is using computational methods to map the intersection of gender and geography across a corpus of 10,000 digitized texts; and, in her current book project, she is examining airplanes and aerial views in British and Anglophone literature and culture. She has been very active in The Space Between, including service on the Society’s Advisory Board. She may be reached at

We offer deepest thanks to Geneviève for her service, and welcome Liz to this new role.
