"eisodos – Journal for Ancient Literature and Theoryis a peer-reviewed, online-journal for B.A.-/B.Ed.- and M.A.-/M.Ed.-students as well as Ph.D.-Students. Classisicsts, students of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, as well as students of Middle and New Latin, Comparative Literature or any other Literary Studies are invited to submit contributions.
eisodos has as its focus questions on the interpretation of Ancient literature. The comparison of different literary theories is a further key aspect on which eisodos will welcome submissions. Interpretation here is intended to include both studies on individual works of literature or specific aspects in individual works of literature as well as studies on literature in general. The theoretical framework and approach that forms the basis of any of these interpretations should always be articulated.
The aim of eisodos is to discuss interpretations of Ancient literature and the theories about literature that lie behind these. The fundamental question is that of how ‘we’, nowadays, interpret and understand Ancient literature and what the basis of that particular understanding may be.
Submissions should discuss Ancient literature from fresh perspectives or test the applicability of literary theories, Modern or Ancient. Comparative studies of Modern and Ancient literary theories are also most welcome. By this is meant studies that address questions concerning the relationship between theory and praxis and, moreover, the continuity of thinking and theorising about literature since Antiquity.
Whether it is at all possible to apply Modern literary theory to Ancient texts of literature or if this leads to anachronistic deformations is a question that remains unanswered for now, as is that of what constitutes a good interpretation – these questions may be handled in an original manner in every submission.
In addition to submissions on the interpretation of ancient texts and literary theory, eisodos invites ideas for reviews of thematically suitable publications. Proposals should be sent to the editors (firstname.lastname@example.org) at any time, independently of any current call for papers. The editors will then commission the reviews and upon final revision, the reviews will be published in the next issue of eisodos.
