In the spirit of its founding editor, George Woodcock, the journal enacts a broad concept of intellectual hospitality: “Canadian Literature seeks to establish no clan, little or large. It will not adopt a narrowly academic approach, nor will it try to restrict its pages to any school of criticism or any class of writers.” We seek the work of new and established writers from a variety of cultural and academic backgrounds, and we welcome creative approaches to language and ideas. Canadian Literature strives to make a profound contribution to the discipline and to the study of literature and the humanities today.
Since its founding in 1959, Canadian Literature has been widely acknowledged to be the leading journal in the field. Each year the journal publishes twenty-four peer-reviewed scholarly articles, several hundred book reviews, and selected poetry. It has a global readership and a proven impact on the discipline. The journal is published by the University of British Columbia, housed in the Faculty of Arts, and supported by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Aid to Scholarly Publications grant.
