Modern Languages Open
There’s a new, free, peer-reviewed, online journal called Modern Languages Open. The first issue has articles on nineteenth-century Russian literature by Elizabeth Harrison, Muireann Maguire, and Benjamin Morgan, introduced by Katherine Bowers. I’m looking forward to reading them — two of the articles are on themes that come up in Leskov’s No Way Out (Некуда, 1864), Jesuits and childbirth — but before I do, I thought I’d share the link to the journal itself. To get the article pdfs, you need to create an account, but it’s quick, doesn’t ask for much, and offers you the chance to sign up as a reader, author, and/or reviewer.
(Disclaimer: I know some of the contributors to the first issue on- or offline.)
