About Us

The Madison Journal of Literary Criticism is an international publication of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We aim to provide a forum for undergraduate students to publish their scholarly work and engage in the contemporary literary debates ongoing in the academic community at large. A primarily student-published journal, MJLC consists of 8-15 articles chosen for their originality, eloquence, internal coherence, and quality of engagement with academic scholarship. Published annually, the Journal exhibits only the best work in undergraduate criticism, placing the work of UW-Madison students alongside that of other top schools worldwide, and providing a literal space for their work and thoughts to commingle. The journal is not confined to a single literary perspective or system of analysis; rather, it strives to reflect the richness and diversity of critical thought that thrives at the undergraduate level.
