What We Publish

From September 2017, Theory and Criticism of Literature and Arts (under the acronym of THECLA) has also been an international, London-based, Publishing House (Company Number 10948729). In 2020, after three years of paper experience, our publishing house turns digital.  This means that all our publications from now on will be accessible in e-book and print on demand format.

Operational headquarters:


Villa Giambonini, Viale Castagnola 27,
