According to the traditional narrative of the colonization of the Arab world, the European subjugation of different Arab states involved an obvious imposition of a similar but entirely unfamiliar illusion of order on all aspects of life. With this imposition, the argument goes, came ideas of "modernization" and "progress" in all cultural and material fields of production in the Arab world. This traditional narrative, however, suggests that before European colonization, the Arab world had not experienced a sense of cultural and political order that made possible its own narrative of modernization.
The International Journal of Literary Linguistics (IJLL) is an open-access, peer-review journal published by Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Germany) that is dedicated to the publication of original research at the interface of literary studies and linguistics. The journal provides an innovative forum for articles participating in the recent reshaping of the field of literary linguistics under the influence of pragmatics, functional linguistics and cognitive studies. It aims at contributing to a new, dialogic understanding of literary production and reception.
The journal invites contributions from scholars working on different languages and literatures.
