About The Journal :

The Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics (ISSN: 0252-8169) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal ko published by the Vishvanatha Kaviraja Institute of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics, India since 1977. The Institute was founded on August 22, 1977 coinciding with the birth centenary of legendary philosopher, aesthetician, and historian of Indian art, Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877-1947).

The Journal published quarterly as Spring (February), Summer (May), Autumn (August), and Winter (November) issues — is committed to interdisciplinary and cross-cultural issues in literary understanding and interpretation, aesthetic theories, conceptual analysis of art, literature, philosophy, religion, mythology, history of ideas, literary theory, history, and criticism.

Concept Note :

The inception of postmodernism influenced and reformed the approach of scholars towards gender studies by accentuating the differences that existed amongst women and amongst men. Postmodern theorists denied the concept of traditional essentialist practices that identified the common condition of ‘being a man’ or ‘being a woman’ and established the notion of identities to be regularly in the process of formation and hence plural and fragmented, thereby rejecting the modernist claims of coherent, unified self. The dissolution of identity as something stable and fixed shifted the focus of gender critics from construction of femininity to construction of gender broadening the perspective from objective to subjective study.

The notion of ‘Third World woman’ was equally challenged as a racist hierarchy of privilege, where subaltern consciousness is argued to be a construction of socially authorized language, not a self or subject that can will itself to speak.

The special issue on Gender and Sexuality : Masculinities and Femininities invites research papers, articles and book reviews to explore the construction, deconstruction, performativity and un-doing of gender, and how sexuality interacts with the same, to enhance and enrich our understanding of plurality of gender identity. A healthy and fresh approach would not only deal with ample nuances related to gender and sexuality but would also lead to gender sensitization, answering the call of the contemporary times heralding gender inequality and discrimination.
