College Literature is an international, peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to publishing original and innovative research from across the discipline of literary studies. The journal is currently accepting manuscripts for publication in 2014 (Volume 41). While we welcome submissions from across the various periods and intellectual fields of Anglophone and comparative literary studies, we particularly encourage submissions that interrogate the terms of their own critical practice and reflect on the current parameters of literary study.

If you can make your research (past or present) sound interesting, eye-catching, and understandable to the general reader (e.g. jargon-free), we'd love to hear from you, whether you're a doctoral candidate or a tenured professor.
