FRAME is a biannual journal of literary studies, run by students and former students of Utrecht University, which publishes articles by international theorists along with important lectures, interviews, and critical reviews. Since its establishment in 1984, it is the only Dutch publication forum that allows for a centred discussion on comparative literary studies. FRAME broaches cutting-edge topics in the literary field and has in the past had the opportunity of working with well-known scholars such as Jonathan Culler, N. Katherine Hayles, Mieke Bal, Astrid Erll and Rosi Braidotti. As of 2023, FRAME is a peer-reviewed journal, supervised by an advisory board.

Issues of FRAME are usually centred on a specific theme that resonates with the contemporary literary debate, and the editorial board aims to compile a set of articles that together allow for a fruitful discussion. Additionally, the Masterclass section offers students the opportunity to gain some much-needed publishing experience, as well as valuable guidance during the (re)writing process. The journal furthermore offers room for conference announcements, symposiums or workshop reports, lectures, and interviews.

FRAME is a print publication, that becomes open access two years after publication. To subscribe or order issues of FRAME, click here. For an overview of the bookstores in which FRAME issues can be found, follow this link.
