Alluvium is an open access scholarly journal dedicated to 21st-century writing as well as 21st-century approaches to the literary canon. Written by leading academics in the field, the journal offers topical columns that are intended to reflect upon key issues and emerging trends in literature and literary criticism, and open up discussion through the site's message boards accompanying each piece.
