Mission Statement

With its inaugural spring/summer 2006 issue, “Literary History and the Religious Turn” (Bruce Holsinger, editor), the University of Colorado’s scholarly journal English Language Notes marked a new beginning. Whereas an academic journal of 1963 (the year ELN was founded) could well imagine its readers to agree on such fundamental premises as the nature and scope of the field of literature, since then a proliferation of approaches, justifications, and critical discourses, as well as the fluidity of the very object of study, have made that kind of confidence itself a subject of debate. Over the past two and a half years, therefore, ELN has undergone an extensive makeover as a semiannual journal devoted exclusively to special topics in all fields of literary and cultural studies. The editorial collective is particularly determined to revive and re-energize the journal’s traditional commitment to featuring shorter “notes,” often no more than three or four pages in print, an aspect of ELN that aims to provide a unique forum for cutting-edge scholarly debate and exchange in the humanities. Since its inaugural issue, ELN has published “Photography and Literature” (Karen Jacobs, fall/winter 2006); “The Specter of the Archive” (John-Michael Rivera, spring/summer 2007); “Queer Space” (Jane Garrity, fall/winter 2007); “Time and the Arts” (Sue Zemka, spring/summer 2008); “Graphia: Literary Criticism and the Graphic Novel” (William Kuskin, fall/winter 2008); “Experimental Literary Education” (Jeffrey Robinson, spring/summer 2009); “Literature and Pseudoscience” (Katherine Eggert, fall/winter 2009); “Genre and Affect” (Kelly Hurley, spring/summer 2010); “Juris-Dictions” (Nan Goodman, fall/winter 2010); and “Transnational Exchange” (Laura Winkiel, spring/summer 2011); “The Shape of the I: A Double Issue” (Julie Carr & John-Michael Rivera, fall/winter 2011 & spring/summer 2012); “Scriptural Margins” (Sue Zemka, fall/winter 2012); “Advisory Board Issue” (Laura Winkiel, spring/summer 2013); “After Critique?” (David Glimp and Russ Castronovo, fall/winter 2013). Forthcoming issues include “Imaginary Cartographies” (Karen Jacobs, spring/summer 2014) and “Cartographies of Dissent” (Karim Mattar, fall/winter 2014).

ELN is dedicated to interdisciplinary and collaborative work among literary scholarship and fields as disparate as theology, fine arts, history, geography, philosophy, and science. The new journal provides a unique forum for cutting-edge debate and exchange among university-affiliated and independent scholars, artists of all kinds, and academic as well as cultural institutions.
