CFP: The Scattered Pelican

Dear colleagues,

The Scattered Pelican editorial team hopes you have had a great summer so far, and enjoins you to read and distribute the attached Call for Papers for the Fall 2018 issue of The Scattered Pelican, the Graduate Journal of Comparative Literature at Western University in London, Ontario.

The Scattered Pelican is a double-blind, peer-reviewed journal of Comparative Literature at Western University that aims to provide a space for students and other academics to engage and expand the discipline through the publication of new scholarship. The Scattered Pelican is guided by three core commitments (1) to a comparative approach that embraces pluralism and inhabits the interstices among discourses, (2) to playfulness as a levelling perspective that resists the privileging of certain narratives or objects of study, and (3) to an active and conscious pursuit of scholarship that enlarges the discipline through deep engagement with a broad range of objects of study. The Scattered Pelican aims to publish at least one issue every year, as a digital journal with a limited print run. Please note that we cannot publish all submitted papers; however, we can guarantee that all submissions will go through a fair and objective double-blind peer review process.

The deadline for submission is September 24, 2018.
