Symbiosis - A Journal of Transatlantic Literary and Cultural Relations



Symbiosis was launched in 1997 to address the artificial divide between literatures in English on either side of the Atlantic, a divide recognized by few creative writers but institutionalized in the modern academic community. The journal is uniquely concerned with studies of transatlantic literary and cultural relations between the British Isles and the Americas. It remains interested in all genres, all theoretical approaches and all periods from the beginnings of both a transnational and Anglophone America to the present.


"Symbiosis stands alone as the journal of transatlantic literatures in English, and thus helpfully monopolizes a huge, still-evolving area of cultural interest. Symbiosis is unique and compelling." Robert Weisbuch, author of Atlantic Double-Cross: American Literature and British Influence in the Age of Emerson (1989).
