CFP: Portals: Comparative Literature Journal Vol. 6 deadline extended!!!

Deadline for Portals submissions has been extended to March 3rd!!!



Portals: A Journal of Comparative Literature is a graduate student journal published annually by the Comparative Literature Student Association at San Francisco State University.



Portals invites original, critical essay submissions that explore comparative literary topics across cultural, regional, linguistic, and temporal boundaries, as well as poetry translations for the Spring 2008 issue.


Submission Guidelines


NOTE: Only papers by currently enrolled graduate students and doctoral candidates will be considered. Any faculty submissions will be automatically rejected with no further notice.

Comparative Essays:



  • Papers must be written in English.

  • In order to be considered for submission, essays must compare at least
    two literary works from different linguistic traditions.

  • Citations should include both the original language and the English
    translation.

  • Papers should be no longer than 25 pages in 12 point font, and should be
    properly formatted and documented in MLA style.


Poetry Translations:


Portals also invites short poetry translations. Submissions should include
a copy of the original and an additional 2-5 page explication of the
translation. Poetry translations will be published in tandem with the
original. Please submit the original with complete citation.



All submissions are to be sent via e-mail as an MS-Word attachment.
Submissions must include a 250-word abstract and a cover sheet including
name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, school affiliation, and
current academic standing; your name should not appear anywhere else in the
proposal, since this will be a blind selection process.



Contributions for the journal are reviewed with the understanding that they
have not been submitted to another journal. Articles will be published
online late in the Spring of 2008.



Due Date: March 3, 2008
