    As a recently named member of the advisory board / associate editors, I
    would like to encourage you to consider submitting an article or book review
    article to CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture: A WWWeb Journal <
    http://clcwebjournal.lib.purdue.edu/ <http://clcwebjournal.lib.purdue.edu/>
    >, a peer-refereed online learned journal published by Purdue University
    Press < http://www.thepress.purdue.edu/ <http://www.thepress.purdue.edu/> >.
    Please pass this message on to other colleagues, including advanced graduate
    students. In its third year of publication, CLCWeb is an excellent choice
    for contributors for a number of reasons:

    1) CLCWeb is the only online journal dedicated to the comparative study of
    culture and literature. CLCWeb publishes scholarship in the widest
    definition of the discipline of comparative literature and culture and it
    combines traditional comparative literature with comparative cultural
    studies. We publish in literary, critical, and culture theory and methods /
    comparative literary history / the comparison of primary texts across
    languages and cultures / translation as comparative literature /
    marginalities in comparison / diaspora and ethnic minority writing / migrant
    writing / feminist theory and criticism / gay/lesbian writing / comparative
    popular culture / film and other media and literature / lesser-known
    literatures in a comparative context / cross-disciplinary studies where
    literary texts and literary problems are examined with the use of
    sociological, economic, psychological, historical, etc., frameworks and
    methods / literature and the history of publishing, the book, and writing /
    readership and audience research / studies on new trends in the study of
    literature and culture / and the introduction of new works and authors in a
    comparative context.

    2) Taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by new media scholarship
    and technology, CLCWeb has a truly international editorial / advisory board
    and all members are actively involved in the journal. The journals editor,
    Steven Ttsy, currently teaches at Northeastern University and was formerly
    associate director of the Research Institute for Comparative Literature,
    University of Alberta. His numerous books and articles, his work with
    journals and editing, and his extensive conference organization have
    positioned him at the forefront of comparative studies.

    3) CLCWeb is a blind peer-refereed scholarly journal published online.
    Submissions for publication are assessed by the editor and two associate
    editors or by the editor, one associate editor and an outside expert
    selected by the editor or recommended by an associate editor.

    4) Published four times a year, the journal has excellent response time and
    is often able to respond to contributors within a couple of months.
    Contributors receive detailed reviews.

    5) Work published with CLCWeb is made freely available to scholars all over
    the world. In November of last year, for instance, the journal received an
    average of 985 hits daily. Publishing with CLCWeb means that your article
    will be easily available to scholars in your field and related fields.

    6) Articles and bibliographies published in CLCWeb are indexed in the MLA
    International Bibliography, CLCWeb is archived and mirrored by the National
    Library of Canada, and a recent agreement has been made with BCLA: British
    Comparative Literature Association for the BCLA to mirror the journal on the
    site of the association.

    We realize that many scholars in the humanities continue to be wary of
    online publishing and new media scholarship but we are confident that the
    field is changing and that the superior quality of the journals
    publications will serve to establish the journal as a leader in the field.
    Recent highlights to the journal are: issue 2.4, a thematic issue on
    histories and concepts of comparative literature; the publication of a paper
    in English translation by Nobel Laureate Jos Saramago; and a paper by the
    acclaimed translator, Mabel Lee, who is a member of the journal's advisory
    board, on the work of this year's Laureate, Gao Xingjian.
