Special Issue: “The Experience of Literature”


Guest Editor: Peter Mathews (Hanyang University)


Caesura is putting together a special issue on the topic of “the experience of literature.”


This special issue considers the way in which literature is experienced, whether by readers, authors, or characters, in fiction or in theory. Often, encountering literature is portrayed as a life-changing moment or turning-point, but this is not necessarily the case – indeed, essays exploring the resistance to literature’s effects, or even a total lack of receptivity to it, are especially welcome.


Essays of 5,000 to 10,000 words on this topic are welcome. Please format your paper according to the journal’s guidelines, which can be found at the following address: http://www.emanuel.ro/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Instructions-for-author...


Please send submissions as a MS Word file to pmathews@hanyang.ac.kr by November 15, 2017.
