Call for Topics for EJES

Call for Topics for Three Special Issues of European Journal of English Studies

(Volume 24, to be published in 2020)

EJES presents work of the highest quality in English literature, linguistics and cultural studies from the multidisciplinary and multicultural perspectives that characterise the study of English in Europe. The journal’s acronym ‘EJES’ reflects our aspiration to publish cutting-edge research within an outlook that questions boundaries between disciplines and cultural contexts. For us, ‘European’ does not describe a geography, but a situation in which ‘English’ is studied and taught in both Anglophone and non-Anglophone contexts and across a range of disciplines. The general editors are currently seeking proposals for topics for three special issues for Volume 24, to be published in 2020.

EJES is published by Taylor & Francis, a division of Routledge. The journal is peer reviewed and has an emphasis on interdisciplinary projects. The general editors encourage proposals for special issues that span divides between cultural theory, literary analysis and linguistics. Guest editing teams should ideally be comprised of individuals working in different localities within Europe. They should also have significant editing experience.

Recent special issues have included the following:

Volume 21 (2017)

  • 21.2 Debating the Afropolitan, eds Emilia María Durán-Almarza, Carla Rodríguez González, Ananya J. Kabir
  • 21.1 Getting and Spending, eds Silvana Colella, Brecht de Groote, Frederik Van Dam

Volume 20 (2016)

  • 20.1 Formulaicity in Language and Literature, eds Ian MacKenzie and Martin A. Kayman
  • 20.2 J.M. Coetzee and the non-English Literary Traditions, eds María J. López, & Kai Wiegandt
  • 20.3 The Politics of Form, eds Sarah Copland & Greta Olson

EJES – 20th Anniversary

ejes-logoCelebrating 20 Years of EJES (The European Journal of English Studies)

2016 brings the publication of the 20th volume of the European Journal of English Studies (EJES). To mark this occasion, the Editors have curated a special collection of articles which not only showcases the breadth of scholarship that has been a feature of the journal over the last two decades, but also hopes to inspire contributions for future issues. The anniversary collection features an article from each volume of EJES, free to read, with a commentary from the Editors. It also includes an insightful introduction from Professor Kayman which is designed not only to look back on previous content, but also to inspire contributions for future themed issues.
