Call for Papers

Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed academic journal, now in its
fourth year, published by members of the School of English at the
University of Leicester. Our remit is to publish leading research from
those academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study,
post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the
community. This approach also includes the notion of ‘work in progress’
and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those
currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or
Heads of Departments.

University of North Carolina Wilmington
Graduate English Association Conference

social event the night before.)

“Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different
waters flow.”

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos’ wisdom remains salient. None
would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every
scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual
flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend â€" a new branch
from the old.
