Dylan Review was founded to provide a forum for rigorous intellectual exploration of Bob Dylan’s art. The journal publishes peer-reviewed critical articles, invited reviews and review essays, as well as opinion pieces, editorials, and a regular column.

The editors’ founding premise is that Dylan is a singular American artist whose songs, performances, and other art have continued to challenge fundamental values and institutions for a half century. Through our commitment to interdisciplinary discourse, Dylan Review opens conversations and hosts debates on all aspects of Bob Dylan’s body of work, encouraging scholars, authors, and listeners to participate. The Review contains multitudes, and you, our serious readers, are what validate our content.
