Interfaces is a new open access, multilingual, peer reviewed journal dedicated to medieval European Literature. Founded in 2015, Interfaces is edited by scholars around the world and published at the University of Milan. The opening issue begins with an article by the editors that critically examines the terms "Medieval," "European," and "Literature," noting that all three terms are contested. As this opening essay and the site's website collectively emphasize, Interfaces is intentionally interdisciplinary and global in its scope, welcoming scholars of history, literature, codicology, philosophy, and other fields who study the middle ages through text or examine intellectual and aesthetic traditions with roots in the middle ages. In this spirit, the first issue features a wide variety of articles, including an examination of twelfth and thirteenth century French-language texts produced outside of France; a consideration of different classifications and historiographies of Czech literature in nineteenth century academe; and an analysis of Italian poet Petrarch's Rerum vulgarium fragmenta that draws on Theodor Adorno's conception of "late style." While this journal is multilingual, all abstracts (although not all articles) are in English.
