Invitation to Guest-Edit a Special Issue of UNITAS

Dear esteemed colleagues,

UNITAS (meaning “Oneness”), is inviting proposals for a guest-edited special issue to be published for its Fall/Winter 2019-2020 issue. UNITAS is a double-blind peer-reviewed international online journal of advanced research in literature culture, and society. It is published bi-annually by the University of Santo Tomas, the oldest modern university in Asia. The journal itself was established in 1922, making it the oldest extant, multidisciplinary journal in the Philippines.  UNITAS is indexed in the MLA International Bibliography.

In general, UNITAS aims to publish leading-edge and challenging articles and monographs in regular and special issues in relation to the critical currents and themes of the nation, the Asian region and the world which try to meet the various challenges and opportunities of today’s globalization. Although single-authorship of articles remains typical, UNITAS encourages the submission of papers that are co-written by authors working across multi-cultural and multi-linguistic settings, which have resulted from an inter-cultural, inter-regional or international collaboration of researchers in an effort to internationalize knowledge production, circulation and reception.

 In particular, under the rubric of literary and cultural studies in Asia, UNITAS aims to be a platform for ethically engaged studies that represent intersections of national and international literatures, arts and cultures, crisscrossing critical and creative categories, authors and readers, “East” and “West,” “North” and” South,” text and context, close readings and fieldwork, original works and translations, and theoretical and practical methodologies.
