          Announcement: New Journal in Comparative Literature

                         I N T E R T E X T S

_Intertexts_ publishes articles that employ innovative approaches to
explore relations between literary and other texts, be they literary,
historical, theoretical, philosophical, or social. Hybrid methodo-
logies that combine elements from a range of disciplines will be
featured. Methodological reflections and argumentation are valued,
especially when combined with detailed textual analysis. Compara-
tive works from all historical periods are encouraged. Individuals
interested in the use of theoretical perspectives to analyze texts other
than those to which they are generally applied will find the articles
appearing in _Intertexts_ not only provide new understandings of
familiar texts but also use those texts to examine the virtues and
limitations of contemporary literary theory. One theme issue and one
open issue are published annually.

The inaugural issue will be devoted to Latin American women
writers. The topics range from seventeenth-century Baroque
poetry to the contemporary novels of South American women
writers and Latinas writing in the United States.

The second issue assesses the first voyage of Columbus to the
Indies as an ideological battleground on which diverse cultural
values and narratives of history compete for attention.

Premier Journal Issue Due: April, 1997.

Edited by David H. J. Larmour and Paul Allen Miller
