Legenda Studies in Comparative Literature

The book series, Studies in Comparative Literature (SICL), is published in close collaboration with the British Comparative Literature Association by Legenda, the book imprint for new research in humanities disciplines. Legenda was originally founded in 1995 by the European Humanities Research Centre at Oxford University, under the leadership of Malcolm Bowie, President of the BCLA from 1998 to 2004, and is presently owned by the Modern Humanities Research Association.

There are presently forty-seven published titles in the series, with seven more forthcoming in for 2020 and 2021. all the volumes published range widely across comparative and theoretical topics in literary and translation studies, and they also accommodate research at the interface between different artistic media and between the humanities and the sciences. See the homepage of Studies in Comparative Literature for the full list of titles.

The editorial committee, which is appointed by the BCLA, is currently chaired jointly by Dr Emily Finer (St Andrews) and Professor Wen-Chin Ouyang (SOAS, University of London).
