'Literary London: Interdisciplinary studies in the representation of London' is the first and only refereed academic journal to provide a common forum for scholars and students engaged specifically in the study of London and literature. It is dedicated to fostering an intellectual community that will facilitate interdisciplinary exchange. While the editorial focus of the journal is on representations of London in literature, articles in cognate disciplines that will contribute to readings of London are very much encouraged. These subject areas might include readings of London in history, drama, film, geography, art history, architecture, urban sociology, painting and engraving, etc. The Journal is mutually supportive of the annual conference of the same name with which is shares a common web address:
Literary London the journal is published twice a year in March and September.

We are pleased to announce the publication of Vol 3 No 1 which can be accessed from the usual address: (contents below) and continue to welcome good quality essays for furture editions of the Journal.
