Two Important Journals in Literary Criticism and Theory to identify trends

New Literary History 
"New Literary History focuses on questions of theory, method, interpretation, and literary history. Rather than espousing a single ideology or intellectual framework, it canvasses a wide range of scholarly concerns. By examining the bases of criticism, the journal provokes debate on the relations between literary and cultural texts and present needs." Retrieved from site 9/30/2018


Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory (1991- )  
"The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory is a companion volume to The Year’s Work in English Studies . It provides a narrative bibliography of published work, recording significant debates and issues of interest across a broad range of research in the humanities and social sciences. As the fields of critical and cultural studies shift, so the range and scope of the journal alters, and current volumes include chapters on Disability Studies, Digital Humanities, and Animal Studies. The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory functions as a bibliographical tool of practical use to scholars and students alike, as well as a lively collaboration with contemporary debates."
