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.

The editorial board of the JWL has begun accepting submissions for open-call issues.

Daphnis

Journal of German Literature and Culture of the Early Modern Period (1400-1750) / Zeitschrift für deutsche Literatur und Kultur der Frühen Neuzeit

Editor-in-Chief Tobias Bulang

From its foundation in 1972, Daphnis was conceived as a platform for the publication of research into German literature and culture of the early modern period (14th-18th century). Since then it has developed to take on board interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives. It is considered today an outstanding international scholarly forum for research into the early modern period. From a comparative point of view it examines the relationship between German literatures and cultural history and the culture of other European (and non-European) countries in the period, as well as such phenomena as cultural transfer. It addresses problems pertaining to the early new high German language and to Neo-Latin literature, as well as to new research fields such as intermediality, performance theories or gender studies. Within its four issues a year Daphnis offers the possibility of thematic volumes. With its double blind peer-review procedures, Daphnis is a platform which welcomes previously unpublished contributions (in German or English) under the headings: Research Articles, Miscellaneous Contributions, Bibliography and Book Reviews.

Die Zeitschrift Daphnis ist seit 1972 als Organ zur Erforschung der deutschen Literatur(en) und Kultur(en) der Frühen Neuzeit (14.-18.Jh) konzipiert worden. Seit ihrer Gründung hat sie sich im Sinne einer breiteren Interdisziplinarität und interkulturellen Perspektive entwickelt und ausdifferenziert. Heute gilt sie als ein international anerkanntes wissenschaftliches Forum für Frühneuzeitforschung. Sie berücksichtigt unter komparatistischem Aspekt die Beziehungen der deutschen Literatur und Kultur zu den europäischen (auch außereuropäischen) Kulturen dieses Zeitraums und Phänomene des Kulturtransfers. Hinzu kommen aktuelle Fragestellungen der frühneuhochdeutschen Sprache, der neulateinischen Literatur wie auch neuere Forschungsfelder der Intermedialität, Performanz, Gender Studies u.a. Im Rahmen der jährlich vorgesehenen vier Hefte sind inhaltlich geschlossene Themenhefte möglich und werden von Gastherausgebern verantwortet. Im Daphnis werden noch unveröffentlichte Beiträge (in deutscher und englischer Sprache) zu den Rubriken „Abhandlungen“, „Miszellen“, „Berichte“, „Bibliographien“ im Peer-Review-Verfahren aufgenommen. Darüber hinaus erscheinen Rezensionen zu aktuellen Publikationen der Epoche.

The peer-reviewed journal, Journal of Chinese Humanities, is an English-language extension of Literature, History and Philosophy ( Wen Shi Zhe 《文史哲》), a famous Chinese journal published by Shandong University. The content is not restricted to one aspect of Chinese culture but rather spans important topics within the fields of Chinese history, philosophy, and literature. It covers both traditional and modern areas of re-search. Importantly, as opposed to most English language journals that treat on Chinese studies, this journal aims to represent the current research coming out of mainland China. Thus each issue will be composed primarily of articles from Chinese scholars working at Chinese institutions, while at the same time including a small number of articles from foreign authors so as to provide opposing perspectives. This way, top scholars in China can be read in the Western world, and our Western readers will benefit from a native perspective and first hand material and research coming out of China.
Every issue will be theme-based, focusing on an issue of common interest to the academic community both within and outside China. The majority of articles will relate directly to the central theme, but each issue will also accept a limited number of articles not directly related to the current theme. This journal primarily targets academics in the English-speaking world who are interested in multiple aspects of Chinese civilization and humanities. It will be of interest to both scholars and advanced students, both specialists and informed readers. It aims to become one of the best windows for western readers to deepen their understanding of Chinese literature, history and philosophy.

Transcultural Studies

A Journal in Interdisciplinary Research

Editor-in-Chief Slobodanka Vladiv-Glover

The editorial board of Transcultural Studies: A Journal in Interdisciplinary Research welcomes contributions into literatures and cultures in the context of new methodologies in cultural theory, aesthetics, philosophy or political thought. The principle of ‘transculture’ which the journal promotes, refers to scholarly inquiry which ideally transcends ‘national borders’ and purely regional concerns in order to speak in a generalized language of critique shared by a universal community of thinkers and academics.
All articles should contribute to the scholarly debate through original research and a theoretical grounding. Contributions from a comparative perspective will also be considered. The editorial board will plan and advertise specific thematic issues and oversee the refereeing process. Guest editors are welcome to propose topics for an issue or part issue.
Transcultural Studies was originally conceived as a platform for transcultural – post-structural – thought in Russia and Eastern Europe. Post-structuralism was introduced to the Soviet Russian academic scene in the 1980s by the late Georgian philosopher, Merab Mamardashvili. Since the journal’s inception in 2006, the scope of the journal has gradually been enlarged.
