We invite scholars to join us in the consideration of the intriguing issue of alternative voices through examples from the field of Anglo-American literature, linguistic and cultural studies. We suggest addressing various alternative processes and techniques outside the traditional mainstream in general, alternative styles in literature, alternative genres, a variety of subcultures existing along the fringes of mainstream culture, alternative theories, alternative education practices, etc, as well as the processes involved in the creation of a non-conformist, avant-garde, forward-thinking voices, finally addressing to what extent it is possible to be independent on the norm.
