CFP: Works in Progress

All texts and artworks will have at one stage been a work in progress, despite the tendency to value them as cultural artefacts once they are deemed finished and made available for consumption. Redrafting and editing are processes which strive towards a "final" product, meaning their publication often results in the loss or occlusion of multiple ancillary versions. Such materials are important to our understanding of how texts and works are shaped and reshaped, and by whom.

English: The Journal of the English Association invites contributions to a special issue on literature, landscape and the environment.

In the years since the publication of seminal texts such as Carson's Silent Spring, and with environmental concerns never more pressing, ecocriticism has become firmly established in literary studies as a way to think about the challenges facing writers and their readers. Moreover, literary critical engagement with the environment has been enriched in recent years through intersectional work with fields as diverse as disability studies, spatial studies, gender theory, and post-humanism.

INQUIS is an online, biannual, blind peer-reviewed journal which offers graduate students in the field of literatures in English a chance to make their research known internationally. Considering that literary studies as a field of scholarly study has undergone tremendous changes and challenges, both the practice and theory of literary studies certainly need a thorough scrutiny under the light of new perspectives, new approaches, new interpretations as well as new insights. By including the works of graduate researchers, the journal primarily aims to promote dialogue and to serve as an international forum for young academics and researchers where they can share their ideas and contribute globally to the discussions on studies of literatures in English.
