The Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies seeks to publish the best of Hungarian and international scholarship in all the fields covered by English and American Studies, including but not limited to literature, history, art, philosophy, religion, and theory. Manuscripts are welcome and are subject to rigorous peer reviewing: the contribution is first reviewed by the editor; if judged to be potentially publishable, the contribution is sent to consultants for further review; once the contribution has been tentatively accepted, the HJEAS editors work with the author to prepare it for publication.

The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name."

This edited volume marking the centennial of Sholem Aleykhem's death (May 1916), will explore the writer's vast contributions to Yiddish literature through comparison with authors of other national literatures. The aim of the collection is to analyze the work of this foundational Yiddish writer in comparative context in order to bring to light hitherto unexplored aspects of his achievements. Often called "the Jewish Mark Twain" – due to similar writing style and use of pen name – Sholem Aleykhem's favorite writers spanned the spectrum of world literature –

"Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves": Women in Collaboration

updated: 
Sunday, October 4, 2015 - 12:23pm
ACCUTE 2016 (Calgary, 28-31 May 2016); submission deadline 1 November 2015

This panel surveys and celebrates examples of women in collaboration, also taking into account some of the possible challenges associated with women in partnership. How do women's groups or communities handle differences in sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, and religion among members? What does it mean to be women in collaboration in the Canadian city recently voted worst for women (Edmonton), or the city voted best (Québec City), or the city ranked exactly in the middle (Hamilton)? How have women's communities been depicted in various media, and how have collaborators presented themselves? Submissions should be in keeping with ACCUTE's broad interest in English studies, and work on any time period is welcome.
