Comparative Literature Studies publishes comparative critical essays that range across the rich traditions of Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America, and that examine the literary relations between East and West, North and South. Articles may also explore movements, themes, forms, the history of ideas, relations between authors, the foundations of criticism and theory, and issues of language and translation. Each issue of CLS also contains numerous book reviews of the most important comparative literature monographs and essay collections.

CLS is an affiliated journal of the American Comparative Literature Association. With the ACLA, it sponsors the annual A. Owen Aldridge Prize for the Best Essay by a Comparative Literature Graduate Student, and subsequently publishes a revised version of the winning essay.

Recent special-issue topics of CLS have included “Poetry Games,” “The Gender and Queer Politics of Translation,” and “Sustaining Ecocriticism: Comparative Perspectives.” One of its issues every two years concerns East-West literary and cultural relations and is edited in conjunction with faculty members of Shanghai Jiaotong University.

About the Editor:

Thomas O. Beebee was born in Santa Monica, California, in 1955. Seeing that the future was blackouts, he fled as far east as possible, and received his B.A. from Dartmouth College and both his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. He taught German at Bowdoin College from 1984 to 1986, when he joined the faculty at Penn State. He became Associate Professor in 1991, and Professor of Comparative Literature & German in 2000. His fields of specialization in research and graduate teaching are: European literature of the early modern period; criticism and theory; epistolarity; translation studies; and law and literature. His publications include the books Clarissa on the Continent, The Ideology of Genre, Epistolary Fiction in Europe, Geographies of Nation in Modern European and American Fiction, and Millennial Literatures of the New World, 1492-2002.
