Taiwan Lit

About 關於

Taiwan Lit, launched in the summer of 2020, is an online journal aimed at enhancing the burgeoning field of Taiwanese literary and cultural studies. The journal’s dual objectives consist of, first, providing a high-quality, peer-reviewed platform for research publication and, second, cultivating a dynamic critical forum for intellectual exchanges across geographical boundaries. Submissions are welcome in both English and Chinese.

Taiwan Lit 創刊於 2020 年夏季,是一個旨在推展「台灣文學與文化研究」這個新興學術領域的電子期刊。其首要目標在於提供一個高品質的研究成果發表平台,採匿名審查制。同樣重要的,本刊也致力於打造一個超越既有地域區隔的知識交流論壇。英文或中文稿件皆在歡迎之列。

Research

Special Issues 專輯

Since 2024, spearheaded by newly appointed Executive Editor Chia-rong Wu, Taiwan Lit has launched an extended Special Issues project. It features annually published, quest-edited Special Issues curated to illuminate or critique special topics of interest from different perspectives. Invited guest editors will write an introductory essay, reach out to peers for contributions, and take care of copyright issues, if applicable.

自2024年起,在新任執行編輯吳家榮教授的推動下,Taiwan Lit 開始實施一項長期規劃,每年由界內學者客座執編,出版一本採匿名審查制的專輯。「Taiwan Lit 專輯」的策劃方針在於從不同角度對特定議題進行闡發及評議。特約客座主編將負責撰寫引言、徵募蒐集稿件、並處理可能涉及之版權事宜。

Articles 長篇論文

This section publishes full-length, original research articles that are over 6000-7000 words in length. For footnotes and bibliography, the MLA style is preferred. Please also attach an abstract of approximately 200 words. All submissions will undergo an anonymous peer review process, and the results will be communicated in a timely fashion.

本園地登載一萬字以上的原創性學術論文。註釋及書目請依照一般撰稿體例,並請附寄一份約三百字的論文摘要。本刊會對來稿進行匿名同儕審查,並儘可能於最短時間內告知結果。

Forum

Essays 文章

Taiwan Lit aims to provide an alternative publishing venue that underscores timeliness and immediacy. This section accepts all varieties of scholarly writing or multimedia presentation, including those not conforming to the restrictive practices of established print journals: work-in-progress that would potentially benefit from peer input or critique; reworkings of lectures or conference presentations; recasting of ideas that have branched off from a more extensive project; reevaluations of one’s own previously published arguments or propositions; and last but not least, rejoinders to the work of other contributors.

To build a lively intellectual forum, we especially welcome short essays—think pieces, position papers, or scholarly notes—that may inspire discussion, explore new research directions, or perform methodological or institutional self-reflection.

Taiwan Lit 旨在提供一個有別於傳統規格、注重即時性和當下感的出版平台。本欄接受以文字或多媒體呈現的各種學術作品,不受既有紙本期刊慣例的限制;可包含目前尚在進行中但期待獲得同儕點評意見的研究計畫、已具有相當完成度的演講稿或會議論文、衍生於大型主題專著但需另闢蹊徑獨立開展的想法、或針對個人過去發表論點的重估或修正。此外,我們格外期盼收到對本刊已發表作品的回應或討論。

為了建立一個活躍的知識論壇,我們尤其歡迎各種可能激發討論、探索新方向、或對既有研究方法及體制進行反思的短文;包括不同形式的散論芻議或學術筆記。

Commentaries 評介

One of the main objectives of creating the Taiwan Lit platform is to reduce the information gap between scholars residing in different regions of the world. In addition to book reviews in the conventional sense, this section invites less formal, more personal commentaries on new and old scholarly works published in the field, as well as critical theoretical writings relevant to the study of Taiwan literature and culture.

創立 Taiwan Lit 這個平台的原始目標之一,在於試圖縮短散佈世界各地區的學者們有關資訊的獲得與更新上常見的時差。本欄除了傳統意義上的正規書評之外,也歡迎不拘形式、以領域內出版的新舊論文或與人文思考相關的理論著作為對象的評介或摘述。

Reports 報導

This section will post reports or summaries on conferences, workshops, and lectures related to Taiwanese literary and cultural studies. We seek submissions that contribute to any aspect of the subject using diverse formats. Proposals or abstracts for academic projects, conferences and workshops, invited lecture series, etc., are welcome.

本欄將發佈與台灣文學、文化研究有關的研討會、講座、或其他性質活動的報告或摘述。我們徵求側重該主題不同面向、採取不同形式呈現的稿件,同時歡迎各種與學術計畫、工作坊、特邀講座系列等相關的提案概述。

Translations 翻譯

The section includes translated works of Taiwan literature, as well as commentaries on issues related to translation. It seeks to better address the research needs of an English-speaking audience interested in Taiwan literature. We invite English-language translations of Taiwan literature from any period. All literary forms are also welcome.

本欄刊載台灣文學的英文譯作以及翻譯台灣文學相關的評論,致力於協助對台灣文學感興趣的英語受眾研究需求。我們邀請英文為主的台灣文學譯作,作品時期不限,形式不拘。
