Focus and Scope

ARIEL: A Review of International English Literature is a quarterly journal founded in 1970 and published by Johns Hopkins University Press. With readers and subscribers in more than fifty countries, ARIEL focuses on the critical and scholarly study of literatures in English around the world. The journal publishes original articles in postcolonial studies exploring colonial power and resistance as well as innovative scholarship on globalization, new forms and sites of exploitation and colonization in an age of transnational capitalism, displacement and diaspora studies, global ecocriticism, cultural and cross-cultural translation, and related areas. The journal especially encourages articles that do not just offer a close reading of a text or set of texts but that use that close reading to intervene in an existing scholarly conversation.
