The Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Georgia is currently seeking submissions for its second issue of Xenophile, an up-and-coming comparative literature journal. We would like to invite you to take part in this great publishing opportunity. Xenophile will feature the works of undergraduate and graduate students from around the world from diverse disciplines. This is the perfect chance for undergraduate students seeking their first (or second, or third) scholarly publication, as well as for graduate students hoping to reach a new audience.
Our mission is to publish innovative essays that use multicultural, multilingual, and interdisciplinary methods to examine literature from around the world. Please note that we have expanded this year’s guidelines: students from all disciplines are welcome to apply, so long as the work confirms to our mission.
Papers will be evaluated on a rolling basis, but our final deadline is March 17th, 2014.
1. You must be an undergraduate or graduate student at the time of submission.
2. Papers should be no longer than 6,000 words (roughly twenty double-spaced pages).
3. Papers must be in English (they may include quotes in other languages as long as a translations are provided).
4. Papers must be comparative in nature and conform to the mission of our discipline: an interdisciplinary, multilingual examination of the world through literature. Papers must fall into one of the following categories:
a. examine two or more authors/texts from different places or cultures (e.g., Poe and Baudelaire; Baudelaire in Swahili)
b. examine non-Anglophone literature (e.g., on Baudelaire)
c. examine sources not in the traditional literary canon (e.g., historical documents, ethnographies, oral histories, testimonio).
Methodologies from other disciplines (anthropology, history, communication studies, psychology, ecology, etc.) may be employed.
5. Please include a 100 to 200 word abstract with your submission.
6. Please use MLA formatting style. In-text citations in parentheses, e.g.: "You know him, reader, that delicate monster" (Baudelaire 8).
7. E-mail your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Attach your paper as a Word document or .pdf file, or paste it onto the body of your e-mail.
Submissions may not have been previously published or be currently under consideration for another publication. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email us at email@example.com, or consult our website at http://cmlt.uga.edu/xenophile.
