Each year, the Institute is responsible for one issue of the JWL. For 2019, our topic is: World Literature and Postcolonial Studies, edited by David Damrosch. This issue will take up postcolonial critiques of world literary studies and vice versa. Essays may discuss general theories or particular debates or may develop a literary case study. If you’d like to propose an essay for this issue, please email David Damrosch at firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of October.
For 2020, our topic will be: The World Republic of Pascale Casanova, edited by Gisèle Sapiro and Delia Ungureanu. This issue will feature assessments, critiques, and further developments of the ideas that Casanova controversially advanced in her pathbreaking La République mondiale des lettres (1999) and her subsequent essays and books. If you’d like to propose an essay for this issue, please email Delia Ungureanu at email@example.com by the end of December.
