Cadernos de Literatura Comparada #44

Literature and journalism intersect in many different ways. In their production and circulation, they share aspects of a set of technologies they have in common, ranging from verbal language itself to the material resources of handwritten, printed, and digital communication. Over the centuries, many literary authors have been professional journalists and learned from this craft – and vice versa. Periodicals offer regular information about the literary activity, even when it is not their main object, and there are several that specialize in following recent or older literary writing through critical reviews, interviews, and so on. At the same time, literary journalism understood as a specific genre of long non-fictional narrative, or journalism written with a literary slant, has gained a prominent place and has constituted a canon of recognized authors, even winning a Nobel Prize.
