The Journal for Literary and Intermedial Crossings (JLIC) is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal edited by senior members of the Centre for Intermedial and Literary Crossings, based at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The e-journal publishes high-quality, innovative research engaging with literary and intermedial phenomena from various methodological angles and a wide range of disciplines including literary, theatre, media and cultural studies. Supported by an international advisory board, the journal’s peer review process secures the highest scholarly standards and is aimed at an academic readership.
The Journal for Literary and Intermedial Crossings (ISSN 2506-8709) offers an online publication platform to researchers who wish to explore various aesthetic ‘crossings’ concerning media, genres and/or spaces. Targeted squarely at investigating the ‘in-between,’ the journal seeks contributions from scholars broadly covering medial, literary, generic, spatial and cultural crossings that bridge a plurality of potential discourses, modalities, and methodologies. We particularly welcome articles focusing on e.g. intra-, inter- and transmedial phenomena, hypermedia, genre hybridization and mixing, (inter-/cross-)cultural exchange, networks, interactions, contact zones, entanglements, cross-border movements, multilingualism, transnationality, topographies, etc.
JLIC is published twice a year. It welcomes contributions in either Dutch, English, French, German, Italian or Spanish while supporting textual as well as multi-media formatting. According to JLIC’s open access policy, no fees are required for submissions, and all content is freely available.
For each thematic issue, different guest editors are appointed in order to manage the publishing process. All manuscripts are peer-reviewed.
