LINKS & LETTERS, the journal of the Departament de Filologia Anglesa i de
Germanística of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain, welcomes
exchanges with other language and literature journals around the world.

LINKS & LETTERS - Further Information:
             Links & Letters is a refereed journal in the field of English
      Studies. Each issue is organised around a Topic, and the philosophy
      of the journal is to try to make often complex topics accessible to
      an interdisciplinary public. Besides the Articles and Review
      sections, there is an Interview Section with one or more well-known
      scholars in the field answering questions. From issue 3 on there is
      a Bibliography section with a selected and commented bibliography of
      key publications (books and periodicals) in the field aimed at
      orienting the interested reader who would like to know more. Finally
      there is an open Notes and News section: short squibs and replies to
      previous issues are welcome, information about forthcoming events,
      new publications, and anything else our readers would like to make
      of it.
