It welcomes examination of the historical and the contemporary through interdisciplinary perspectives – looking at texts in both their wider conceptual and immediate situational significance. It has a special interest in the retrieval of texts and authors who have been invisible in mainstream disciplinary concerns but are considered significant in their respective locations and are presented convincingly.
