Call for Papers: Inaugural issue of Human: International Journal of Literature and Humanities on “Literature”
Human: International Journal of Literature and Humanities invites submissions for the inaugural issue of the journal, a general issue on “Literature”.

Human: International Journal of Literature and Humanities is an open access peer-reviewed academic journal that serves as a forum for multi- and interdisciplinary discussions across Literature and Humanities, providing academicians, scholars, professionals and students with the opportunity to disseminate their research to a diverse audience of peers and professionals.

F. Scott Fitzgerald puts forth that “That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” Literature is unique to the nations, but the theme is mostly universal. ‘We belong’, because literature is human. ‘Human’ is the main material of literature. Human tells the story and is told in a story. Human makes history and is told in history. Human is sociology, psychology, language, politics, and etc. Human is humanities.

Human: International Journal of Literature and Humanities welcomes papers and book reviews addressing general studies on “Literature” from all disciplines within the Humanities. As a multi- and interdisciplinary journal, we particularly welcome research with an interdisciplinary approach.
