In Progress Journal

In Progress (inprogressjournal.net) is currently seeking submissions for its second issue, scheduled for release on April 20, 2012. All submissions fitting the mission of In Progress will be considered.

In Progress is a peer reviewed, online journal that aims to address issues affecting graduate students across the academic disciplines. Because there are few opportunities for graduate students to interact with and learn from each other outside of our own departments and universities, this journal was conceived as a place for graduate students and faculty to share information and insights regarding all aspects of the often-mystified process of graduate study and beyond into civic discourses and social activism.

Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST)

GELL is GUST's first international conference, organized by the English Department. In a globalized world where the English language has become an established language of communication, new forms of the language, new ways of expression, new meaning, new metaphors have gradually evolved, over the past decades, to embrace, embody and express new themes and concerns not only for newcomers to the language, but also even native speakers. How does this evolution in language and expression affect the language and its literature(s)? Has this evolution enriched or impoverished the language and its literature(s)? Do we now have one global English language/literature, or many different Englishes and English literatures? Where does English tend?
