The Comparatist is a sponsored journal of the Southern Comparative Literature Association. It has appeared in print annually since 1977 and is currently sponsored by the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the Willson Center for the Humanitites and the University of Georgia. The Comparatist has traditionally published comparative work involving literary and cultural movements, literature and the arts, relations between European and non-European literatures, and inter-American literary exchanges. More recently the journal has also focused on the third world, Afro-Caribbean, and Central European literary phenomena. Each issue features eight to ten articles clustered around major comparative-thematic topics, such as "Theoretical Dialogues," "Post-Colonial Perspectives," "Comparative Poetics," or "Eastern-Western Relationships." A substantial review section evaluates important theoretical and practical concerns involving cross-cultural study. As a forum for literary comparatists, the journal encourages a stimulating interplay or intertextual and comparative methods, of theoretical-historical analysis, and of critical interpretation.
