Call for Participation 2017

Friday April 7th – Sunday April 9th 2017
Lisbon, Portugal

Children are seen as ‘little people’, ‘blank slates’, works in progress who are loved, nurtured and guided as they grow to become mature, rational and responsible adults.

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions for its Fall 2016 issue, themed “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary.” EXTENDED Submission deadline: November 11, 2016. ‘Journey’ is a word that evokes images and feelings of freedom, escape, newness, experience, and curiosity. Within English studies, a journey may be literal, requiring movement across borders and spaces; figurative journeys often develop the inner dynamic of a character; and whimsical voyages, on the other hand, take place in the mind—the ultimate creative, uncharted territory.
