Theoretical Studies in Literature and Art (ISSN 0257-0254), launched in 1980 and published bimonthly, a most highly recognized peer-reviewed journal in China, publishes original papers in Chinese or English in arts and humanities, especially literary studies. We welcome MLA-style papers of 6000-12000 words in the fields of literary theory, critical theory, aesthetics, philosophy of art, cultural studies, etc.
All scholars working in the areas of myth and/or fairy tales are invited to submit paper or panel proposals for the upcoming SWPACA Conference. Panels are now forming on topics related to all aspects of myths and fairy tales and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales; one or the other is perfectly fine. Presentations considering both genres are of course welcome and can stimulate interesting discussions. Proposals for forming your own Myth or Fairy Tale-focused panel – especially panels focused on one particular myth/tale – are encouraged.
Paper topics might include (but are certainly not limited to):

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.
