       The WENSHAN Review
Founded in 1995, The Wenshan Review of Literature and Culture is a refereed, generalist journal with an emphasis on original research into Western and Eastern literatures and cultures. Issued biannually in both print and online versions, the journal is based in the Department of English at National Chengchi University (NCCU), Taipei, Taiwan, and has distinguished itself for its interdisciplinary purview, comparative nature, and two languages (English and Chinese) of publication. The journal is indexed in the MLA International Bibliography and the Taiwan Humanities Citation Index Core (THCI Core). It is ranked amongst the top journals of literature and culture accredited by the Ministry of Science and Technology in Taiwan. Members of the editorial team and advisory board cover almost all research areas of literary and cultural studies, and include chair professors, outstanding and prize-winning scholars, and elected Fellows of the British Academy, the American Academy, the Academia Europea, and the Royal Society of Canada. Research articles and book reviews are welcome and so are proposals for special issues. Normally, reviews of articles are completed within three months. All queries and manuscripts should be sent to wsreview@nccu.edu.tw.
