The Text


An International Peer Reviewed Online Journal of Language, Literature and Critical Theory

What cannot be said above all must not be silenced but written.

― Jacques Derrida

The Text is an International peer reviewed open access bi-annual (January and July) online journal. The journal offers a platform for scholarly writings on language, literature, theory/criticism, cultural/queer/disability/ translation/media/performance/eco/animal studies. Envisaging purposeful research between literature and other disciplines (literature and philosophy, literature and religion, literature and education, literature and sociology, literature and anthropology, literature and science, literature and medicine, literature and economics, literature and politics, literature and law, literature and music, literature and archeology, literature and psychology). The Text encourages papers that engage creative, critical, and alternative perspectives on inter/transdisciplinary issues.

We also welcome short critical/research notes on compelling themes.
