Call for Submissions, 2013 Open Issue

Digital Philology is a new peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval vernacular texts and cultures. Founded by Stephen G. Nichols and Nadia R. Altschul, the journal aims to foster scholarship that crosses disciplines upsetting traditional fields of study, national boundaries and periodizations. Digital Philology also encourages both applied and theoretical research that engages with the digital humanities and shows why and how digital resources require new questions, new approaches, and yield radical results.

[UPDATE] Comparative English: Reassessing Language and Literature Studies in a Globalized World

updated: 
Sunday, November 6, 2011 - 7:18am
Myles Chilton, Chiba University; Ryan Melsom, independent researcher

The worldwide growth of English as a first and foreign language has by now necessitated the a term like 'Global Englishes' to describe the range of dialects and usages. Such a term calls attention to the de-coupling of the language from its Anglo-American 'homes', and to the popularity of English as a foreign subject of study. The place of Anglophone literary education, however, is less firm. Despite the fame of certain canonical Anglophone writers and the global domination of Anglophone publishing conglomerates, Anglophone literature is often taught in the service of language rather than literary education.
