"Caesura"

Journal of Philological and Humanistic Studies

 

Caesura—Journal of Philological and Humanistic Studies is a biannual international journal of philology and humanistic studies currently published by Emanuel University Press. The journal investigates thematic subjects in literature and language, cultural studies and morals, hermeneutics and historical texts with reference to their literary and religious contexts, but it is also intended to cover fields such as theories of the novel, poetry, and political speech, postmodern literary discourses and argumentation, disruptive languages, symbols and images in literature and culture. Caesura is dedicated to scholars preoccupied with the manner in which momentous debates in philology can benefit from an extension into the broader and convivial space of humanities in order to acquire new insights and meanings.
