Current Issue: Fall 2022

Our latest issue engages with diverse modes of cultural and intellectual interpretations as it includes a wide range of topics that cross the boundaries established between literature, art, philosophy, and linguistics.

Our guiding principle is to present new scholarship that is pluralistic in regard to methods, approaches, and objects of study within the framework of rigorous comparative praxis.
