About the Journal

International Journal of English and Comparative Literary Studies   ISSN 2709-4952 (Print) and 2709-7390(Online) is an international, peer-reviewed journal publishing high-quality, original research. The aim is to host international conversations by publishing scholarly articles, as well as hybrid and creative works. The journal welcomes articles that explore intersections among national literatures, global literary trends, and cultural history and theory.

We view national borders – and the transcendence of borders – as places where creativity can flourish and where new ways of thinking and expression can emerge. We aim to publish work that is thought-provoking, challenging, uplifting, or surprising. We hope that national, international, transnational, transcultural, diasporic, post-colonial, and migrant writing of all kinds will take root here.
