'Not only is World Literature Today one of the oldest continuously published magazines devoted to international literature, but a remarkable continuity has prevailed on our masthead page in the past couple of decades. Dr. RC Davis-Undiano will soon celebrate twenty years as WLT’s executive director in what I like to characterize as a third golden age in the magazine’s history, following the tenures of our founding editor (1927–49), Roy Temple House, and our longtime editor (1967–91) Ivar Ivask. Moreover, as of 2018, I’ll become the third longest-serving editor in chief (2008–18) in the publication’s history, following House and Ivask. Standing on the shoulders of such giants, we feel fortunate to survey the horizons of the international literary scene from the Southern Plains of Oklahoma, a place that has always been a crossroads of languages, cultures, and the imagination.'
