Please note our new deadline for submissions: February 5, 2006
Call for Papers
Portals: A Journal of Comparative Literature is a graduate student journal
published by the Comparative Literature Association of San Francisco State
Portals invites original, critical essay submissions that explore comparative
literary topics across cultural, regional, linguistic, and temporal boundaries
for the Spring 2006 issue.
-- Papers must be written in English.
-- In order to be considered for submission, essays must compare at least two
literary works from different linguistic traditions.
-- Citations should include both the original language and the English translation.
-- Papers should be no longer than 25 pages in 12 point font, and should be
properly formatted and documented in MLA style
Portals also invites short poetry translations. Submissions should include a
copy of the original and an additional 2-5 page explication of the translation.
Poetry translations will be published in tandem with the original. Please submit
the original with complete citation.
All submissions are to be sent via e-mail as an MS-Word attachment. Submissions
must include a 250-word abstract and a cover sheet including name, address,
telephone number, e-mail address, school affiliation, and current academic
standing; your name should not appear anywhere else in the proposal, since this
will be a blind selection process. (Only papers by currently enrolled graduate
students and doctoral candidates will be considered).
Contributions for the journal are reviewed with the understanding that they have
not been submitted to another journal. Articles will be published online in the
Spring of 2006.
