Inquire is a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal of Comparative Literature by graduate students in the Comparative Literature Program at the University of Alberta that serves the intellectual and professional interests of an international community of students, teachers and scholars.
We are seeking graduate students in any discipline, including but not limited to Comparative Literature, World Literature, English, Film Studies, or Cultural Studies to submit reviews of scholarly texts relating to this issue’s theme, “Literature and Culture”.
The review will be published in the spring issue of Inquire, which should be published online in February of 2013. The review should be between 1000-1500 words long—so pretty short—and should follow the format of a typical academic book review (you can look at issues of Inquire or other journals for examples, if you like). I will need the first draft emailed to by November 26th in a format accessible by MS Word (the edition does not matter). If any revisions are needed, we would need to have them finalised by the middle to end of December.
If you are interested, and happen to have a book in mind that you have encountered that was recently published (2011-12), please send me the title and author so I can check it out, and if it is approved, you could review that rather than a suggested text. Please keep in mind that books reviewed must be scholarly titles and pertinent to the theme of the issue (which is itself quite broad).
The review would be between 1,000-1,500 words long--so pretty short--and would be formatted following the MLA citation style. Please ensure that you send the review directly to me. My email is listed below.
Deadline: November 26, 2012
