About Journal

Persian Literary Studies Journal is an international peer-reviewed and open-access journal, published since 2012 on behalf of Shiraz University and Iranian Society for the Promotion of Persian Language and Literature.

PLSJ was originally established to explore a wide range of issues of current concern to those working in the field of Persian literature around the world. However, in order to promote cooperation across national, cultural and disciplinary boundaries, the scope of the journal was broadened in 2016 to include interdisciplinary critical studies of literature, visual arts, music, theater and cinema. International scholars engaged in cutting-edge research in their respective fields have been invited to join our Editorial Board, which now boasts experts from across the globe in Persian, Arabic, Turkish, English, German, and French literatures, as well as comparative literature, cinema studies, art history, anthropology and linguistics.

With new members in the administration of the journal, the scope of activities have also been widened to include the publication of not only original research papers, but also special issues, book and article reviews, as well as translation and translation reviews.

We at the editorial board of PLSJ hope this journal will open new avenues of research and intellectual exchange among scholars, and cordially invite you to share your ideas with us and our readers.
