the minnesota review, a journal of literature and cultural politics, invites submissions for a "Global English" special focus section in an upcoming issue. The aim is to track the emergence of Global English as a new field within academic literary and cultural studies. Contributors might consider the place of world literature in North American English departments, or the study of English-language literature and culture at universities based in non-Anglophone countries around the world. Have the critical methodologies developed in Anglophone literary and cultural criticism traveled along with their objects of study? How has the inclusion of world literature in North American English departments impacted the discipline?
