International Journal of the Book

Editor

David Emblidge

Aims and Scope

The International Journal of the Book provides a forum for publishing professionals, librarians, researchers, and educators to discuss that iconic artifact, the book—and to consider its past, present and future. Do the new electronic media (the internet, multimedia texts, and new delivery formats) foretell the death of the book? Or will they give us greater access, diversity, and democracy? The journal is relevant for anyone in the world of books—authors, publishers, printers, librarians, IT specialists, book retailers, editors, literacy educators, and academic researchers. Discussions range from the reflective (history, theory, and reporting on research) to the highly practical (examining technologies, business models, and new practices of writing, publishing, and reading).

The journal is open to contributions in all fields studying the history of textual practices, hermeneutics and philology, philological controversies, and the intellectual and global history of writing, archiving, tradition-making and publishing. Neither confined to any discipline nor bound by any geographical or temporal limits, Philological Encounters takes as its point of departure the growing concern with the global significance of philology and the potential of historically conscious and politically critical philology to challenge exclusivist notions of the self and the canon. Philological Encounters welcomes innovative and critical contributions in the form of articles as well as review articles, usually of two or three related books, and preferably from different disciplines.

Aims and Scope

From its origins in 1983 as the collected papers of a small but innovative group of specialists in the area of textual editing (TEXT: An Interdisciplinary Annual of Textual Studies), the Society for Textual Scholarship's journal has led the way in opening the Anglo-American discussion in the emerging field of textual studies. Textual Cultures continues the tradition of TEXT but with an ever more inclusive and a multi-voiced approach not just to issues of textual editing and redefinitions of textuality, but to the notion of the diverse textual cultures in which these definitions and our approaches develop and evolve. The endeavor of Textual Cultures to investigate the meaning and implications of textuality is designed to widen our understanding of how new developments in fields like codicology, material philology, art history, musicology and cultural studies are redefining and integrating our notions of what constitutes a text in diverse cultural contexts.

Aims and Scope

The Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies is a home for new interdisciplinary scholarship on the early modern world that roots its inquiries in current theoretical and political debates. JEMCS understands the "early modern" in its broadest possible scope, and welcomes studies on political theology, philosophy, economy (labor, slavery, class), aesthetic currents, and the intellectual and cultural world of the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries. Since its founding in 2000, JEMCS has served as a venue for theoretical approaches that have, in recent decades, reshaped early modern scholarship: queer and feminist theory, postcolonial theory, histories of race and empire, transnational studies, histories of globalization, and cultural materialism. JEMCS reflects these stimulating possibilities by providing a common venue for scholars in such diverse fields as anthropology, art history, economics, history, literary criticism, political science, and sociology. JEMCS challenges the boundaries that separate traditional scholarly disciplines while bringing those disciplines into dialogue with each other.

Aims and Scope

The Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies publishes work across the disciplines on topics ranging from late antiquity to the seventeenth century, work that is both historically grounded and informed by the broad intellectual shifts have occurred in the academy. Theoretical inquiries and a wide range of political initiatives have transformed the contexts in which we work. These transformations have profound consequences for our attempts to understand past cultures even as they encourage our critical reflections on the present and its relations to the pasts that we study. We aim to foster the rigorous investigation of past cultural forms and their historiographical representations, representations whose political dimensions will be of special interest. The particular pasts on which we focus are those of medieval and early modern Europe and Western Asia. They are the pasts of material objects as well as texts; of women as well as men; of merchants, workers, and audiences as well as patrons; of Jews and Muslims as well as Christians./p>

We place a special emphasis upon questioning the Southern European derivation of our inherited paradigms and upon exploring alternative conceptualisations, geographies and periodisations of the Renaissance. While our principal focus is on the written word, we are interested in the full variety of cultural practices, including the visual arts, costume and other forms of material culture, philosophy, theology and the art of politics. Similarly, although most of the work we publish deals with Northern Europe in the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, we are especially interested in attempts to challenge existing periodizations of the Renaissance in the North, and to establish continuities with earlier and later epochs.

postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies is a cross-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journal in medieval studies that aims to bring the medieval and modern into productive critical relation. The journal will work to develop a present-minded medieval studies in which contemporary events, issues, ideas, problems, objects, and texts serve as triggers for critical investigations of the Middle Ages. Further, we are concerned to illuminate the deep historical structures–mental, linguistic, social, cultural, aesthetic, religious, political, sexual, and the like–that underlie contemporary thought and life, and therefore, we are also interested in attending to the question of the relation of the medieval to the modern (and vice versa) in different times and places. We want to also demonstrate the important value of medieval studies and the longest possible historical perspectives to the ongoing development of contemporary critical and cultural theories that remain under-historicized. Finally, we will advocate for and support the continuing development, from any and all disciplinary directions, of historicist, materialist, comparatist, and theoretical approaches to the subjects of the Middle Ages.

In a single volume, readers might find an argument for attributing a previously unknown work to Shakespeare or de-attributing a famous work from Milton, a study of the connections between class and genre in the Restoration Theater, an interdisciplinary exploration of the art of the miniature and Fielding's novels, or a theoretical exposition of the "material sublime" in Romantic poetry written by women.

Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History

Editors

Jeffrey J Malanson, Rachel E. Hile, Cathleen M. Carosella

Aims and Scope

Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History, an international interdisciplinary journal, publishes scholarly essays that explore the connections between history, literature, and the arts. Humans understand themselves and their cultures, even create themselves and their cultures, through stories. Sometimes we call those stories “history”, and sometimes we call them “literature”. Clio is interested in the interconnectedness of these two disciplines, as well as the philosophical work that supports these kinds of inquiries. We publish researched essays at the intersections of these disciplines — that is, not factual expositions of historical events or uncontextualized “readings” of literary texts, but articles that are interdisciplinary in argument and method. Essays should be accessible to an interdisciplinary scholarly audience.

Hillis Miller, Donald Morton, Cary Nelson, Peter Nicholls, Stephen Regan, Paul Smith, C. Christopher Soufas, Jr., Teresa S. Soufas, Hortense J. Spillers, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak

Aims and Scope

College Literature: A Journal of Critical Literary Studies is dedicated to publishing original and innovative scholarly research across the various periods, intellectual fields, and geographical locations that comprise the changing discipline of Anglophone and comparative literary studies. The journal is committed to the renewal of critique as a historically determinate, self-reflexive, and socially substantive practice, which in resisting 'empathy with the victor' (Benjamin) remains perpetually dissatisfied with each new consensus. We are convinced that literature remains a significant locus for such a renewal, since in seeking to establish a space 'outside' normative social values, literary (and other) texts continually stage and restage the discursive, disciplinary, and institutional limits that enable such norms, and so work to reveal critique’s complicity with them. In interrogating critical practice, the journal aims to investigate its involvement in broader parameters of public debate organized by such enduring (though mutating) political demarcations as that between private and public, the national and the global, or indeed between the cultural and the political itself.

Aims and Scope

Criticism: A Quarterly for Literature and the Arts was founded in 1959 by the English Department of Wayne State University. The journal was designed to advance the study of literature and the other arts, and to function as a medium for the scholarly explication and evaluation of artists and their works. While periodically shifting its focus in response to developments within the fields of literary and cultural studies, Criticism has, throughout its history, maintained its overall commitment to examine the arts and literatures from all periods and nations, and from a variety of scholarly disciplines and critical perspectives. In its current incarnation, Criticism aims to present contemporary thought at its most vital and to serve as a forum for conversations about the nature of scholarly criticism itself. The journal's editors welcome methodologically driven, argument-based scholarship of all kinds, whether advancing fresh areas of study and critical inquiry, engaging with newly emergent fields and critical/theoretical approaches to the arts and the humanities, or practicing traditional modes of scholarship and thinking in a reflective manner.

E-rea

Editors

Marie Odile Hedon, Grégoire Lacaze

Aims and Scope

Founded in 2003, E-rea Revue électronique d’études sur le monde anglophone publishes articles devoted to Anglophone studies. E-rea is based in the LERMA, the Laboratory for Study and Research into the “Anglophone World”, which is part of Aix-Marseille University. The journal is one reflection of the work and activity of Lerma members, which is why some issues are the direct result of Lerma-organised symposia. However E-rea remains an independent entity and, as such, welcomes contributions from the community of Anglo-American and linguistic studies at large, both in France and elsewhere in the world. Hence a fair proportion of our issues presents work assembled by academics affiliated to other centers. Alongside its two central themes, each issue includes a restricted number of miscellaneous articles, interviews, and book reviews.

Essays in Criticism covers the whole field of English Literature from the time of Chaucer to the present day. The journal maintains that originality in interpretation must be allied to the best scholarly standards. Moreover, whilst always pursuing new directions and responding to new developments, Essays in Criticism has kept a balance between the constructive and the sceptical, giving the journal particular value at a time when criticism has become so diversified. In addition to the articles, Essays in Criticism has lengthy and searching book reviews, and the 'Critical Opinion' section offers topical discussion on a wide range of literary issues.

As regards the methods, the only restriction is that they have to meet the requirements of scholarly research, that is, the results should be verifiable.

Aims and Scope

The Hare is an online, peer-reviewed journal, publishing untimely reviews of books, articles, and performances in early modern theater. This journal provides a venue for the contention and revaluation of old scholarly work in contemporary scholarly debate. We invite you to interpret "old" creatively, though traditional reviews of recent publications will not be considered. We welcome untimely reviews of books and articles that our field has overlooked or overemphasized to its detriment. We also welcome untimely performance reviews in early modern theater, emphasizing fascinating, bizarre, passed-over performances that have been excluded from traditional performance history. The Hare will be the home for brief, provocative pieces on these lost, invisible productions. Finally, we also solicit future-looking pieces, from theater artists and scholars for productions they would like to see produced--arguing for what they see as the Cymbeline that Philadelphia most needs today, or The Shoemaker's Holiday in Beijing, for example.

Publisher & Frequency
