Literature and aesthetics : the journal of the Sydney Society of Literature and Aesthetics (SSLA)

Literature & Aesthetics publishes fully refereed scholarly articles on the arts from a wide range of viewpoints, as well as occasional poetry, black and white art, short stories and book reviews. The journal reflects the vigour and creativity of contemporary scholarly and artistic practice, and contains articles of interest from leading international scholars and researches in the arts and humanities. The editors welcome academic articles from authors from around the world on a wide range of topics. The journal has a scope that joins the philosophical to cultural studies. The focus is on literature, but we also philosophically examine a range of other cultural expressions. Literature & Aesthetics fills a gap in this general academic market is attested to by the very wide range of international scholars who submit their research to us.
