What We Do

At Portals, we are interested in the figurative power of doors and windows, while also exploring the frames, jams, and walls that permit them. We position the journal in the dynamic, interstitial space that is the field of comparative literature. By comparative we mean the analytic juxtaposition of two distinct elements, at least one of which is literary in nature. However, we are in this field because we feel that comparative analysis challenges disciplines across the spectrum of academic inquiry, and we are eager to enact this challenge in what we choose to publish.

A Brief History

Portals was first published in 2003. In 2005, the editors of Portals took the journal online. We believe that in digital form Portals joins the international community of scholars and writers who consistently revise and enliven our field. We also believe in access to information. Printed versions of previous material issues are reformatted and archived on our site, along with the 2002 issue of Powerlines, the predecessor to Portals. All issues may now be printed on demand at Cafe Press, where you may also purchase other tangible items such as mugs, T-Shirts, and those ever-necessary book bags (see the Store link).
