About the Journal

The Digital Literature Review is an undergraduate journal featuring peer-reviewed research by multiple contributors from various universities and academic disciplines. Each issue of the DLR will focus on a compelling theme that inspires original, thought-provoking research. In its current theme of Brave New Worlds, this journal will feature pieces that examine the characteristics of  utopias and dystopias in various aspects of culture, such as film, literature, and television. This annual, student-run journal is a product of Ball State University’s immersive learning initiative and is supported by the BSU English Department and the Office of the Provost.

The Digital Literature Review is looking for submissions for our sixth issue, titled “Brave New Worlds: Utopias and Dystopias in Literature and Film.” We welcome original, engaging, scholarly submissions that explore and examine literary and filmic representations of utopias or dystopias, worlds—ideal, nightmarish, extra-terrestrial—that allow us to examine and critique our own world and environment. Read the full submission guidelines here.

If you are a Ball State student and are looking for an immersive learning experience, e-mail dlr@bsu.edu to get involved.

Publishing is supported by Ball State University Libraries in Muncie, Indiana.
