About Us

ESLA Journal of Cultural and Literary Criticism is a digital journal hosted by the Literature Department of the Faculty of Letters at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and publishes bi-annual issues, in January and July. Our aim is to provide a platform for scholarly voices that are speaking about literature written in English.  As a journal  from Latin America, we seek original work that reflects the diverse worlds that exist in this language. We prioritize original contributions from the following critical approaches: comparative and intersectional studies, postcolonial studies, cultural and gender studies, bilingualism and translation studies. 


We welcome academic articles as well as essays, reviews, interviews, and any type of written reflection on literature and cultural productions in English. We are happy to receive and review poetry, graphic novels and short stories. If you would like to propose any other kind of digital text feel free to write us! In both our Non Fiction and Fiction sections, we are open to innovations.

We are a double blind peer reviewed open access journal. No subscription is required and we pay no fees to authors or peer reviewers. All our contents are protected by Creative Commons (CC) license, which allows the sharing of our contents under the following terms: BY, NC, ND.

We are indexed in Latindex and Modern Language Association (October 2017).
