Introducing Intertexts, a journal of comparative literature and theoretical reflection. The most interesting and challenging work in the humanities today is being done in the spaces between texts--be they social, historical, or linguistic--rather than within their bounds. Intertexts is a forum for all those whose intellectual reflection draws them into this inter-textual space.

Intertexts is published twice yearly. Thematic issues alternate with open ones. Future topics will include French Feminism Across the Disciplines and Webs of Discourse: The Intertextuality of Science Studies. For information on current issues or submissions, please see our web page at Intertexts 1.1, Claiming Voices, Seizing Spaces: Latin American and Latin Women Writers, is now available.
