INTERTEXTS: a Journal of Comparative and Theoretical Reflection, publishes articles that employ innovative approaches to explore relations between literary and other texts, be they literary, historical, theoretical, philosophical, or social. In particular, the editors are looking for work which engages issues on a sufficiently theoretical or comparative level to interest people in a variety of disciplines. Hybrid methodologies that combine elements from a range of disciplines are encouraged. Methodological reflections and argumentation are valued, especially when combined with detailed textual analysis. INTERTEXTS is particularly interested in the use of theoretical perspectives to analyze texts other than those to which they are generally applied. In this way, we hope to provide not only new understandings of familiar texts but also to use those texts to examine the virtues and limitations of contemporary literary theory. In this spirit, the editor and editorial board encourages comparative works from all historical periods. Typically, one theme issue and one open issue are published annually.
