Comparative Critical Studies

Comparative Critical Studies is the house journal of the British Comparative Literature Association, published by Edinburgh University Press in three issues yearly. The journal has a dedicated page on the Edinburgh University Press website for browsing old issues and for online access. Comparative Critical Studies also incorporates Comparative Criticism (Cambridge University Press, 1979-2003) and New Comparison (BCLA, 1986-2003) both of which have now ceased publication.

The journal is concerned with comparative literary and critical studies internationally and in the UK, from whatever standpoint.
