Call for Papers: 2021-2022

The Scattered Pelican (the graduate journal of comparative literature) invites the submission of scholarly papers and critical book reviews for the academic year 2021-2022.

The Scattered Pelican’s guiding principle is to present new scholarship that is pluralistic in regard to methods, approaches, and objects of study within the framework of comparative praxis. It also encourages active and conscious pursuit of scholarship that enlarges the space of the discipline of comparative literature through deep engagement with a broad range of media, novel applications of critical theory, and primary texts in their original languages.

Related fields of interest may include (but are not limited to): Cultural studies, Digital Humanities, Disability Studies, Environmental Studies, Film Studies, History, Linguistics, Literary Studies, Philosophy, Postcolonial Studies, Queer and gender studies, Media studies, Theory & Criticism, Visual Arts, Translation Studies.

The Scattered Pelican accepts full-length journal articles (4000-5000 words) and book reviews (1000-1500 words) in English, French, and Spanish. The word count must be inclusive of the Works Cited and endnotes, and all texts must follow the MLA style (8th edition).

Please include your name, abstract keywords, institutional affiliation, and a 50-word bio in your email. Kindly send your completed papers to thescatteredpelican@gmail.com

To maintain the integrity of the anonymous peer-review process, please ensure that all personal information and identifying marks are removed from your submission. We look forward to reading your submissions!
