Journals at CMLL

The Department of Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures hosts and has previously hosted 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)

Former editor David H. J. Larmour, Horn Professor of Classics. 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."

Céfiro Journal

Céfiro, the graduate student organization of the Spanish and Portuguese program at Texas Tech University, is committed to the diffusion of research on Latin American, Latino, Mexican-American and Spanish culture as well as the publication of original creative writing. The organization's journal Céfiro: Enlace Hispano Cultural y Literario is a peer-reviewed annual publication with an eighteen-year history that is now on-line and can be found in databases such as Dialnet and the MLA. Volume 15 will consist of three sections: a general section, a special section on the topic of Céfiro's 2017 conference Discursive Landscapes: Connecting Geographies, Cultures and Contexts, and a section devoted to creative writing.


Former associate editor David H. J. Larmour, Professor of Classics. 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."

Monographic Review

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."
