symplokē is an interdisciplinary critical theory journal. Its aim is to provide an arena for critical exchange between established and
emerging voices in the field. It supports new and developing notions of comparative literature and theory, and is committed to
interdisciplinary studies, intellectual pluralism, and open discussion. It is particularly interested in scholarship on the interrelations
among philosophy, literature, culture criticism and intellectual history, though will consider articles on any aspect of the intermingling
of discourses and disciplines.
symplokē (www.symploke.org) has been continuously published for fifteen years. It is published in print by the University of Nebraska
Press, and online by the Johns Hopkins University Press. Its contributors and advisory board include many of the most prominent figures in
the field. It is internationally distributed and can be found in libraries across the world.
The journal takes its name from the Greek word symplokē, which has among its various meanings interweaving, interlacing, connection
and struggle. The journal's editors believe that continuing change in the humanities is contingent upon the interweaving, connection, and
struggle between traditionally independent domains of discourse. One of symplokē's broader goals is to contribute to the opening of
alternative academic frontiers by providing a forum for scholars of varying disciplines to engage in the intermingling of ideas in
