Polyglossia is an English Studies research journal edited and judged by members of the Lambda Delta (ISU) chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society. All English majors and minors are welcome to submit essays. Polyglossia is published twice a year. The Fall issue features essays written by undergraduate students, and the Spring issue features essays written by graduate students.
The first undergraduate volume of Polyglossia was published in Fall 1997; the first graduate volume in Spring 2006. The title of the journal comes from a quotation by the Russian theorist M.M. Bakhtin, "The world becomes polyglot, once and for all and irreversibly. . . Languages throw light on each other: one language can, after all, see itself only in the light of another language."
