The Edinburgh Journal of Gadda Studies (EJGS) was founded in 2000, and celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2010 with a special Decennial Edition.

Central to EJGS is the conviction that resources are intimately linked and that web platforms can be developed to deliver cultural interaction and connectivity.

A complex, exceptionally diverse and even more exceptionally sized operation involving a great deal more than a subject’s internationalisation, the Journal redeploys its dynamic hypertext via sitewide-hyperlinked lemmas. In this way, ideas become navigation props, making online resources an extremely rich and enriching environment.

With over 8,000,000 hits since 2000, EJGS is clearly reaching out. This last figure is particularly important to the EJGS Team. Involving people, in and beyond Gadda Studies, has been at the heart of our mission since its very beginning.

It is in this spirit that the Journal launched the Edinburgh Gadda Prize in 2010. Gadda is one of the giants of 20th century European literature, yet there wasn’t a prize to his name. In filling the gap, our aim was not just to celebrate past greatness and recognise scholarly excellence, but also to widen participation through creating involvement opportunities especially for young people.
