Eleven Eleven is a biannual journal of literature and art based at California College of the Arts. The aim of the publication is to provide a forum for risk and experimentation and to serve as an exchange between writers and artists.
Eleven Eleven was founded in 2004 by Youmna Chlala and Gayle Romasanta.
Encounters: An International Journal for the Study of Culture and Society will promote and publish scholarship from the humanities and the social sciences, and their intersections on topics related to the encounters of cultures, intellectual traditions, and social and political systems across space and time. The journal seeks a critical understanding of the transcultural and transnational factors that shape such encounters --and by extension, the world as we know it. The editors encourage contributions that explicitly link the humanities and the social sciences and engage their different methodologies. Regular special volumes will offer stimulating, focused engagement with specific historical, political, cultural, social or theoretical questions. Encounters will be peer-reviewed and published biannually.
Since it was established in 1958, English Studies in Africa has published some of the key interventions in literary studies. Given its origins in the Department of English at the University of the Witwatersrand, its emphasis for many years was thoroughly Leavesite. Looking back over the succession of editions, though, one can trace the challenges to this orthodoxy, first in the name of cultural materialism, and subsequently from a diverse range of theoretical perspectives.
The journal has emphasized, as its name attests, the study of world literature in English within African contexts, at the same time as it set about promoting the study of African literature worldwide. Its founding editors clearly wished to establish a conduit between Anglo-American and Southern African literary studies, and this ethos persists, though in a revised form.
