Interface. Journal of European Languages and Literatures is a peer-reviewed journal published three times per year by the European Languages Division, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, National Taiwan University (Taipei, Taiwan).
Interface is devoted to offering a forum where the seemingly independent scholarly disciplines that focus on particulate European national languages/literatures can communicate and interact with each other. Inter-disciplinary, comparative, and area studies are very welcome; nevertheless, interface is committed to bringing into attention the wider relevance of scholarship that traditional academic organization would assign to a “national department”.
Interface aspires to encourage intellectual discussion by publishing both issues on special topics and general issues. The papers accepted can focus on any aspect related to the languages and literatures of any period of Europe. The preferred language of publication is English; however, papers in French, German, Spanish, Russian and Italian will also be accepted for publication in equal terms; furthermore, interface will endeavour to expand its resources so that in the future it may accept papers in additional European languages.
Ecocriticism and Pandemics
As the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted the 21st century by totally changing people’s lives, it has also become one of the factors that is bringing forward new ways of thinking about the environment. Ecocriticism has therefore become a new trend in cross-disciplinary research, necessitated by the state of emergency due to the pandemic. In The Ecocriticism Reader, Cheryll Glotfelty notes that “ecocriticism is the study of the relationship between literature and the physical environment”, in other words, it is a combination of literature and the natural environment as an implicit criticism between human/non-human, and objects/non-objects. In this issue, we are attempting to explore the new possibilities between ecology and pandemics. With the spread of the pandemic, has it changed people's ecological concept? Is there any new interpretation of the pandemics underway within eco-criticism?
Interface. Journal of European Languages and Literatures is inviting original unpublished papers written in English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, or Italian for interface Issue 17, to be published in February 2022. Topics may include (but are not limited to):
- Rethinking the literary concepts of ecocriticism
- The ways pandemics and plagues have been interpreted or “constructed”
- The ways in which societies have reacted to and coped with the threat posed by pandemics and plagues
- The role that past views of pandemics and plagues play in more recent ecological crises
- The role of education in dealing with health crises and climate changes
- Questions of ecology and pandemics
- Questions of power across medical, environmental, and political ideologies.
Starting from this issue Interface also invites papers not related to the Special Topic which will be published in a dedicated General Topic Section.
