Interfaces: Centre for Medieval Literature (CML) has founded a new Open Access journal

Centre for Medieval Literature’s new internationale on-line journal Interfaces – A Journal of Medieval European Literatures is out now with the first issue: Histories of Medieval European Literatures: New Patterns of Representation and Explanation.

Interfaces – A Journal of Medieval European Literatures creates a new international forum for research in medieval textual culture from all of Europe. The Open Access journal is an initiative of the Centre for Medieval Literature (Odense / York) and is published by the University of Milan. The first issue, published in July, contains contributions from leading scholars in the field, who open discussion on the fundamental question of how to represent and explain the literary heritage of the Middle Ages in non-nationalizing perspectives.

Center leader at CML Lars Boje Mortensen says: “The journal accepts contributions in English, Italian, German, French and Spanish in order to reflect the diversity in the research field and to support multilingualism in Europe and globally. To judge from reactions, downloads, and visitors, as well as activity on, Facebook and Twitter, the journal has already after two months had significant impact internationally.”

Interfaces will be officially launched September 18 at the Biblioteca Trivulziana at the Sforza Castle in Milan.
