Journal of World Literature–NEW eJournal

I’m happy to report that Libraries now subscribe to this new Comparative Literature journal.

 Journal of World Literature. Leiden: Brill, 2016- . We have access to current and past issues.

DESCRIPTION: “The Journal of World Literature (JWL) aspires to bring together scholars interested in developing the concept of World Literature, and to provide the most suitable environment for contributions from all the world’s literary traditions. It creates a forum for re-visiting global literary heritages, discovering valuable works that have been undeservedly ignored, and introducing aspects of the transnational global dissemination of literature, with translation as a focus. The journal welcomes submissions that can concurrently imagine any literary tradition, in any language, moving beyond national frames to simultaneously discuss and develop the cosmopolitan threads of a variety of literary traditions. It also welcomes contributions from scholars of different research backgrounds working collaboratively as well as from group research projects interested in showcasing their findings, in order to meet the challenge of a wider and deeper discussion of literature’s networks”–Publisher’s website.

Our subscription only became active today so we’re still in the process of adding this to the WU Classic Catalog. Please access the journal using the above link.
