The general editors of the European Journal of English Studies are currently seeking proposals for two special issues of Volume 25 to be published in 2021.  EJES presents work of the highest quality in English literature, linguistics and cultural studies. The journal’s acronym ‘EJES’ reflects on the journal’s 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. EJES is published by Taylor & Francis, a division of Routledge. The journal is peer reviewed and has an emphasis on interdisciplinary projects. Numbers of the special issues have been subsequently published by Routledge as books.

 

The general editors encourage proposals of up to 300 words for special issues that span divides between cultural theory, literary analysis and linguistics. Guest editing teams should be comprised of two individuals working in different localities within Europe. They should demonstrate significant editing experience. Please send your proposal by 1 March to all three general editors and see the EJES website for examples of earlier CFPs: http://essenglish.org/ejes/
