The Dostoevsky Journal

A Comparative Literature Review

Editor-in-Chief: Slobodanka Vladiv-Glover
The Dostoevsky Journal: A Comparative Literature Review is an international interdisciplinary journal promoting deconstructive readings of the works of F. M. Dostoevsky in conjunction with other texts of the European literary and philosophical canon. Contributions are invited on topics which situate Dostoevsky in the context of postmodernism, poststructuralism and phenomenology, or which explore Dostoevsky's poetics in a historical context and with respect to its impact on the Western cultural paradigm. The journal uses double-blind peer review by at least two external readers.

Review Quotes

"In the depth and breath of tackling the universal questions of human freedom and responsibility and representing the modern psyche, F. M. Dostoevsky remained unsurpassed amongst Russian writers of his age, according to the testimony of his elder contemporary Saltykov-Shchedrin. Led by the Australian Dostoevsky specialist, Dr Slobodanka Vladiv-Glover (Monash University), and an international team of experts, The Dostoevsky Journal: A Comparative Literature Review is publishing significant research on a range of subjects in literary theory, poetics of the novel, aesthetics, history of literature and archival materials focused on Dostoevsky's life and works."

Prof. Dr. Konstantin A. Barsht - The Institute of Russian Literature, Russian Academy of Sciences
