Journals at CMLL
The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures hosts several noted journals, spanning a number of disciplines. CMLL faculty serve as editors and/or co-editors for the following journals, except in the case of Céfiro, which is the journal of the Céfiro graduate student organization and is edited by the students themselves.
American Journal of Philology (AJP)
David H. J. Larmour, Horn Professor of Classics, Editor; Donald Lavigne, Assistant Professor of Classics, Book Review Editor. The AJP website states: "Since its founding in 1880 by Basil Lanneau Gildersleeve, American Journal of Philology (AJP) has helped to shape American classical scholarship. Today The Journal has achieved worldwide recognition as a forum for international exchange among classicists and philologists by publishing original research in Greek and Roman literature; classic linguistics; and Greek and Roman history, society, religion, and philosophy."
A graduate student organization at Texas Tech University, Céfiro is committed to the investigation and diffusion of Latin America and Iberia's literary and cultural creations. Its journal publishes critical and fictional works on a wide range of themes and authors. The organization is an exceptionally well-run entity which holds very successful annual conferences with noted speakers and broad attendance, the proceedings of which culminate in the publication of the Céfiro Journal.
David H. J. Larmour, Professor of Classics, Associate Editor. The Intertexts website states: "Intertexts, a journal of comparative and theoretical reflection, publishes articles that employ innovative approaches to explore relations between literary and other texts, be they literary, historical, theoretical, philosophical, or social. In particular, the editors are looking for work which engages issues on a sufficiently theoretical or comparative level to interest people in a variety of disciplines. Hybrid methodologies that combine elements from a range of disciplines are encouraged."
Janet I. Pérez, Horn Professor & Qualia Chair of Spanish, and Genaro Pérez, Professor of Spanish, Co-Editors. The Monographic Review website states: "Traditional scholarly journals tend conservatively to deal primarily with "establishment" topics, while those which are not yet admitted to the canon receive inadequate critical scrutiny or are treated in predictably aloof fashion. Because academic publishing may be a high-risk endeavor, subjects not in the mainstream may be shunted aside. While not all of equal significance, many such subjects are worthy of more serious consideration than they have received heretofore, and have much to offer investigators of contemporary myths and culture in regard to the mentality of the age, societal values, and the process of sociocultural change . . . Of primary consideration in the genesis of the MONOGRAPHIC REVIEW/REVISTA MONOGRÁFICA has been the remedying of specific areas of critical neglect."
