About EJES

The European Journal of English Studies presents work of the highest quality in Anglophone critical theory, literary, linguistic, cultural, media, and sexuality studies. This coheres with the plurality of English and Anglophone studies in Europe and relates to the journal’s association with the European Society for the Study of English.

Pronounced “edges,” the journal takes an interest in topics that investigate borders and overlaps between interdisciplinary scholarship in English and Anglophone Studies. We take a broadly questioning stance towards “English” and “English Studies” and wish to promote dialogue between the disciplines and cultural traditions of inquiry relating to these studies. “European” then describes situations in which “English” is studied and taught in a variety of Anglophone and non-Anglophone contexts. “The cause is Europe… The cause is also English Studies in the broadest sense of that term… Moreover, the cause is debate” (Editorial, EJES 1.1).

EJES appears three times a year. We do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. The journal is peer-reviewed and several issues have been re-published in the hardback series Routledge SPID. Individual issues are devoted to specific topics that are proposed by guest editing teams. A substantial book review section keeps readers informed about new publications relating to English and Anglophone Studies. EJES is published by Routledge, a division of the Taylor and Francis Group and is indexed in the Clarivate Analytics Citation Indices. The journal is managed by a team of three general editors, currently constituted by Greta Olson (Justus Liebig University, Giessen), Isabel Carrera Suárez (University of Oviedo) and Katerina Kitsi-Mitakou (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki). The book review editor is Adam Piette (University of Sheffield).
