‘Kevin Whetter is the new co-editor of the internationally-recognized and prestigious Arthurian Literature journal’.
For the journal Arthurian Literature, 2020 marks the end of a decade under the editorial aegis of Elizabeth Archibald (Durham University) and David F. Johnson (Florida State). The new co-editors are K. S. Whetter of Acadia University and Megan G. Leitch of Cardiff University.
Arthurian Literature is an interdisciplinary journal devoted to the critical study of all aspects of the Arthurian legend. The range of scholarly inquiry is wide, from mediaeval and early modern Arthuriana of any European tradition, to Victorian art and literature, to global modern Arthurian medievalism. Previous articles have focussed on such diverse topics as manuscript study, literary analysis, source-study, gender, and explorations of Arthurian heraldry, art, or music, as well as historical and geo-political investigations.
Arthurian Literature has always welcomed long articles (up to 20,000 words), permitting full and thorough exploration of any relevant Arthurian topic, including charting new directions in Arthurian studies. Shorter items of under 5,000 words are published as Notes, and updates on earlier articles are also appreciated. Submissions should be formatted according to MHRA style, with footnotes for references. As of Volume 36, the new editors are Megan G. Leitch and K. S. Whetter. Potential articles and notes should be sent to one or both editors:
