Metacritic Journal for Comparative Studies and Theory calls for the December issue of the Journal, welcoming a non-themed collection of papers written by established scholars and young researchers alike. Would-be contributors are invited to send articles illustrating the complexities of their field of choice, engaging with the literary and cultural theory so as to promote reading in a customized framework that privileges interdisciplinarity and self-reflection. We highly appreciate critical efforts to tackle contemporary fictional works while connecting them to philosophical attempts to theorize their cultural context. Especially encouraged are cultural, historical, and theoretical considerations suspicious of grand narratives.
