More than one hundred twenty-five years ago, MLN pioneered the introduction of contemporary continental criticism into American scholarship. Since then, its reputation for high standards and excellent quality has continued and grown. Critical studies in the modern languages are featured in four issues (Italian, Hispanic, German, French) and recent work in comparative literature provides the foundation for the articles and notes in MLN. Every volume contains four single-language issues and one comparative literature issue. Winner of the CELJ Phoenix Award!

The 2024 French issue of MLN invites original contributions, in English or in French, to a special issue entitled “Passage to the Nineteenth Century” edited by Daniel Desormeaux in collaboration with the editorial board. We invite authors to explore the theme of “passage” and its implications in French and Francophone literatures and cultures, in ways that transcend beliefs in the nineteenth century as a homogeneous landscape limned by traditional academic discourses. We encourage transversal, comparative, and global perspectives that engage with particular concepts of passage through literary texts, artistic production, and case-based expressions of historical and cultural norms. We know, for instance, that nineteenth -century French literature was open to broad spaces of Francophone passage: Louisianans, Africans, Quebecers, Asians, Acadians, and West Indians were all actively present at the heart of the Romantic period. Likewise, the concept of passage was integral to some of the major schools of thought and myriad movements that shaped the nineteenth century. Such passages—recognized, neglected, misunderstood, or forgotten—make the nineteenth century a bulwark against historical obsolescence and literary confinement.

Consistent with the journal’s practice, submissions will be accepted after double-blind review. Authors must follow all provided submission guidelines. The journal does not accept translations, in either language, of previously published work. Full compliance with all deadlines is a requisite for publication.

Manuscripts for the French Issue should be sent as electronic attachments to MLNJournal@jh.edu. All English-language submissions MUST follow the 8th Ed. MLA Stylebook and be print ready. Submissions must arrive by January 30 to be considered.

This special issue undertakes a comprehensive reevaluation of the influence of Italian culture on the United States post-World War II. The essays featured in “Re-Modernist Italy: Literatures in the Transatlantic Postwar Years” analyze how cross-cultural influences affected the literatures, arts, industrial society, and institutions of both countries, shaping a modern understanding of Italian style and identity in the context of an emergent globalized world. Through a variety of case studies, our contributors especially shed light on the ways the burgeoning professional editorial and literary culture mediated between Italy and the US—by examining the work of agents who promoted and disseminated Italian culture across the Atlantic in the 1950s and 1960s, they also offer a reflection on the concepts of “influence,” “circulation,” and “infrastructure,” in the context of cultural transfers."
