The Journal of Literary Multilingualism explores texts written in non-native languages, in a mix of languages and alternating languages. It examines a wide range of literary practices from around the globe broadly defined by multilingual and multicultural situations. The phenomenon of literary multilingualism is as old as literature itself but has received more scholarly attention as migration and globalization have increased in recent years. As the first international journal devoted entirely to this emerging interdisciplinary field, it offers a forum for cutting-edge research across the humanities and social sciences. We welcome contributions that examine multilingual authors, texts, readers, and contexts, as well as cultural phenomena (e.g. translation and reception) and societal issues (e.g. migration and language politics), as they relate to literary texts and multilingual processes in all historical periods. In addition to scholarly articles, the journal publishes creative work by multilingual writers.
