Litteraria Pragensia was founded in 1990, following the fall of the Iron Curtain. The journal represents both a continuation and a departure from one of its precursors, Casopis pro moderni filologii (CMF), formerly edited by Roman Jakobson as a vehicle of the Prague Linguistic Circle. In its revised form, Litteraria Pragensia maintains a broad focus on comparative literary studies, predominantly within thematic issues on topics as Contemporary Poetics, Romanticisms, American Gothic, Irish Cultural Studies, Quebec Literature, Shakespearean Heterotopias, Boundaries and Contact Zones, Mechanisms and Machines, Reading in Ruins, and others. The journal has published work by Stephen Greenblatt, Marjorie Perloff, Augusto de Campos, Steve McCaffery, Jerome McGann, Malcolm Kelsall, Sacvan Bercovitch, Aleida Assmann, and Nicholas Grene.
