Message from the Acting General Editor

We are pleased to announce that we have been in advanced discussions with another academic team in the UK to take over the journal, as Flinders University can no longer host it. At this stage, I can't make an official announcement until July, when the academic team launches its adjoining research centre. The new team specialises in transnational writing, education and creativity, so it is indeed a good fit for the journal.

In 2019 and 2020, we will have much work to do in re-building the journal with a new host, a new website and style guide, and some additional members of the editorial team and boards. This means that we are currently in the transition stage and submissions will be closed until December 15th 2019. During this time, we will be doing some consultation about the journal's future scope. If you can spare the time, we would appreciate if you could complete a small survey (distributed in June/July) which asks you about your interest in the journal, your subject areas, and what you would like to see in future issues. We will collate the information gathered, send you a short summary, and decide on the best way forward.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and support over the years. We are optimistic about the journal's future.

About Transnational Literature

Transnational Literature is available under a Creative Commons Attribution licence.

Welcome to Transnational Literature, an open access, refereed international e-journal published twice a year by the Flinders Institute for Research in the Humanities, Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia.

Transnational Literature evolved from the e-journal Quodlibet: the Australian Journal of Trans-national Literature, and before that the print CRNLE Reviews Journal, published by the Centre for Research in New Literatures in English. CRNLE was founded in 1977 by Dr Syd Harrex and was based in the Department of English at Flinders University, South Australia. The Centre promoted research into the literatures of India, Africa, the Caribbean, Canada and Australia, and all parts of the world where literature in English has been written. The Centre had a world-wide list of associates and a long list of publications, and organised and supported a number of conferences involved in the scholarly investigation of the role of new literatures throughout the world.

Transnational Literature maintains a focus on new literatures in English, but has expanded its portfolio to consider all literatures that deal with cross-cultural contact and interaction. Submissions on these areas are welcomed and writers are encouraged to consult the Submissions page. Postgraduate and Honours students are encouraged to submit papers.

Details of the submission and peer reviewing process, and copyright and publication ethics statements can be found on the Submissions page.

Transnational Literature is indexed in MLA Bibliography, Proquest and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
