Intertexts was founded by David H. J. Larmour and Paul Allen Miller (formerly a Professor of
Classics at TTU) as a journal of comparative literature and theoretical reflection,
which explores the relations between texts (literary, historical, theoretical, philosophical
and social) and encourages the use of theoretical perspectives to analyze texts other
than those to which they are generally applied. In this way, the journal provides
new readings of familiar texts and examines the virtues and limitations of contemporary
literary theory. The journal is available through Project Muse and other online resources.
One themed issue and one open issue are published annually. Previous themed issues
12.2: The Geographies of Genre
12.1: Lost and Found: Essays on Nabokov’s Novels
10.2: Landscapes of Desire: Conversations on Brokeback Mountain
9.1: Literature and Science: The Next Generation
5.2: Woman in the Eighteenth Century
The journal is currently edited by Prof. Jacob Blevins at McNeese State University, but Prof. Larmour remains an Associate Editor and is the current Book Review Editor. Students in the Classics MA program have the opportunity from time to time to help with the work of the journal, thereby gaining valuable professional experience.
