in the Literary Imagination
is a biannual scholarly journal focusing on special topics in literature
and enjoys a worldwide audience with contributing editors and authors
considered the leaders in their fields. SLI is unique among
scholarly journals in that it relies on an editorial committee to
review proposals from potential guest editors, who then invite scholars
to contribute articles exploring different aspects of a particular
theme. One of the favorable distinctions resulting from this practice
is that each issue is topic driven; in this sense, SLI serves
more as a monograph series than as a typical journal.
SLI is published under the auspices of the Department of English
at Georgia State University in Atlanta. Please feel free to browse
