Modern Languages Open.

The latest XIX век post informs me, and I am informing you, of a wonderful new venture, a free, peer-reviewed, online journal called Modern Languages Open. The inaugural issue has all sorts of interesting-sounding stuff, like “Reading Intermediality: Lorca’s Viaje a la luna (“Journey to the Moon,” 1929) and Un chien andalou (Buñuel/Dalí, 1929)” by Paul Julian Smith, but of course I’m most drawn to the Russian material, “New UK Research in Nineteenth-Century Russian Literature” by Katherine Bowers, “Topographic Transmissions and How To Talk About Them: The Case of the Southern Spa in Nineteenth-Century Russian Fiction” by Benjamin Morgan, “Dostoevsky and the Politics of Parturition” by Muireann Maguire, and “The Image of the Jesuit in Russian Literary Culture of the Nineteenth Century” by Elizabeth Harrison; I look forward to exploring them all when the pressure of work eases a bit. As Erik says, “To get the article pdfs, you need to create an account, but it’s quick, doesn’t ask for much, and offers you the chance to sign up as a reader, author, and/or reviewer.”
