The Journal for Literary and Intermedial Crossings (JLIC) is an e-journal that publishes original and innovative contributions engaging with literary and intermedial phenomena from various methodological angles and a wide range of disciplines including literary, theatre, media and cultural studies. We particularly welcome articles focusing on aesthetic ‘crossings’ of media, genres and spaces.

There will be two issues each year. The first issue of the year regroups regular submissions following an ‘Open Call,’ while the second issue represents a selection of papers delivered at the annual symposium of the journal’s founding research Centre for Literary and Intermedial Crossings. Call for Papers are regularly posted in the Open Calls section.

We welcome contributions between 5,000 and 6,000 words (references and footnotes included) in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian or Spanish. All manuscripts are peer-reviewedJLIC supports textual as well as multi-media formatting. In addition to articles, we also welcome suggestions for thematic issues (including a minimum of 5 articles plus introduction). All work submitted to JLIC should reference and be formatted according to our Author Guidelines. Articles may be submitted in Word format.
