Founded in 1963, Comparative Literature Studies publishes critical comparative essays on literature, cultural production, the relationship between aesthetics and political thought, and histories and philosophies of form across the world. Articles may also address the transregional and transhistorical circulation of genres and movements across different languages, time periods, and media. CLS welcomes a wide range of approaches to comparative literature, including those that draw on philosophy, history, area studies, Indigenous, race, and ethnic studies, gender and sexuality studies, media studies, and emerging critical projects and methods in the humanities. Each issue of CLS also includes book reviews of significant monographs and collections of scholarship in comparative literature.

CLS will publish comparative articles in literary history, the history of ideas, critical theory, studies between authors, and literary relations within and beyond the Western tradition. CLS does not publish notes, and encourages submissions over 15 pages. All manuscripts should follow the guidelines for scholarly writing set forth in the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS), especially chapter two, “Manuscript Preparation and Manuscript Editing,” sections 2.1–2.87. In preparing notes, authors should use “endnote style”—CLS does NOT use the “Works Cited” style. All quotes should be in both the original language and in English translation, and for the sake of readability we request that you use a 12-point font, double-spaced.
