Taiwan Lit

About 關於

Taiwan Lit, launched in the summer of 2020, is an online journal centering on studies of Taiwan literature and culture. It aims to reinvigorate the intellectual climate of the field by building a transnational critical forum, disseminating substantive research ideas, and facilitating innovative modes of scholarly exchange. We invite submissions in either English or Chinese。

Taiwan Lit 是一個以「台灣文學與文化研究」為核心關注的電子期刊,於 2020 年夏季創刊。本刊旨在打造一個跨國學者論壇,傳播有價值的研究觀點,促進新型態的學術交流模式,以求進一步拓展該領域的創新潛能。英文或中文稿件皆在歡迎之列。

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 larger 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。

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 a rigorous review process, and the results will be communicated within the shortest possible time.

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。本刊會對來稿進行嚴謹的審查,並儘可能於最短時間內告知結果。

Special Topics 專輯

The section features clusters of works on a common theme, in writing or multimedia, 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.

本欄為專題選輯,刊登針對特定議題之文字或多媒體作品,旨在從不同角度對該議題進行闡發及評議。特約專輯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。

Reports 報導

This section will post interviews as well as reports on conferences, workshops, and lectures. We seek submissions that contribute to any aspect of Taiwan literary and cultural studies using primarily a “question-and-answer” format. Proposals for collaborations with conference panels, workshops, invited lecture series, etc., are welcome.
