Professor Stuart Christie, Head and Professor of the Department of English Language and Literature, was recently appointed by international publisher John Wiley & Sons as Editor-in-Chief for its international academic journal Literature Compass.

Professor Christie is pleased with the appointment, he said: “I’m very grateful for the opportunity a reputable publisher like Wiley has given me to help rebrand Literature Compass as it seeks to more proactively engage the best literary scholarship, written in English, from China and elsewhere in Asia. The publisher appreciates, I think, that such a ‘pivot’ toward Asia is both necessary and overdue as it seeks to complement a strong existing base in Europe and North America with a more truly global reach, with Asia being a great (and expanding) market for the circulation of literary ideas. Based here in the English department at HKBU, I am very excited to help contribute to this process.”

Literature Compass publishes peer-reviewed articles on research and current thinking from across the entire discipline and provides a critical platform for the scholar and an ideal entry point for the non-specialist.

Stuart Christie教授對獲得委任感到高興,他感謝Wiley給他協助改進《Literature Compass》的機會,以引進更多中國和亞洲學者的英文學術論著。他表示,出版人認為應加強刊物的全球聯繫,更重視亞洲這個文學交流新興重地,以補足現時側重歐美的情況。他說,作為浸大一份子,很欣喜能貢獻所長。

《Literature Compass》刊登經同行評審、有關文學研究和最新思維的文章,促進學者交流,也是非專家的理想入門學刊。
