EARLY MODERN LITERARY STUDIES:
A JOURNAL OF SIXTEENTH- AND SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY ENGLISH
EMLS: General Information
Early Modern Literary Studies (ISSN 1201-2459), a new
refereed journal in electronic form, intends to serve both
as a formal arena for scholarly discussion and as an
academic resource for researchers in the area. Articles in
EMLS will examine English literature, literary culture, and
language during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries from
a variety of perspectives; well-considered responses to
published papers will also be published as part of a
Readers' Forum. Reviews in EMLS will evaluate recent work
in the area as well as academic tools of interest to
scholars in the field. Our Internet site will also gather
and maintain links to useful on-line resources.
EMLS will be available free of charge in hypertextual format
on the World Wide Web at
This site is now accessible for browsing, and our first
issue will appear in Spring 1995. A version will also be
available via GOPHER.
EMLS will be published three times a year for the on-line
academic community by the University of British Columbia's
English Department, with the support of the University's
Library and Arts Computing Centre.
CALL FOR PAPERS
EMLS invites contributions of critical essays on literary
topics and of interdisciplinary studies which centre on
literature and literary culture in English during the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A wide range of
approaches is encouraged.
CALL FOR REVIEWS
EMLS invites reviews of recent scholarly works -- critical
editions, commentaries, and theoretical, historical,
literary, or interdisciplinary criticism which centres on
sixteenth- or seventeenth-century English or related
literary culture. We also encourage reports of all resources
which are relevant to literary studies of the period,
including those available exclusively in the electronic
Our aim is to publish reviews of a consistently high
standard, which are both engaging and critically fair,
written by a broad range of people at different stages of
their academic careers with varied disciplinary backgrounds.
CALL FOR LINKS
The Electronic Editors at EMLS wish to provide links from
the EMLS On-line Resources Page to WWW-accessible resources
of interest to scholars in English, particularly scholars of
the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
We have a growing number of sites and services in mind, but
the dispersed and evolving nature of the Internet makes it
likely that we will not catalog them all. If you know of a
resource that would be a useful addition to those resources
already available through the EMLS On-line Resources Page,
please let us know by sending a short description of the
site or service along with its URL (Universal Resource
