The Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Georgia is launching a new journal of comparative literature, Xenophile. This journal will feature the works of undergraduate and graduate students from around the world. We are currently seeking submissions for our premiere issue, and we would like to invite you to be a part of it. This is a perfect opportunity for undergraduate students seeking their first (or second, or third) scholarly publication, as well as for graduate students hoping to reach a new audience.

Papers will be evaluated on a rolling basis, but our final deadline is March 15th, 2013. We are seeking literary scholarship with a global scope, keeping in mind the comparative aspect that distinguishes our discipline from others. For more information, please refer to our website http://cmlt.uga.edu/xenophile. If you have any further questions please feel free to email us at xeno@uga.edu.
