Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621), a refereed annual journal produced jointly
by the Department of English at the University of Leicester and the
English Association, requests submissions for inclusion in its third
issue to be published Autumn 2008.

The focus of the journal is on high-quality work by early career
researchers. We especially welcome submissions, therefore, from
lecturers, assistant or associate professors, senior graduate students,
or post-doctoral researchers or teachers.

Our approach is open and inclusive, and definition of ‘literary studies’
is broad. In the first two issues we have published essays on a range of
topics and authors including war writing, Renaissance university drama,
twentieth-century poetry, American fiction and Victorian domestic
manuals. As this suggests, we encourage work that considers any literary
period. We also welcome essays that deploy a range of critical
strategies, from traditional close readings, to historically-grounded
scholarship and cutting-edge theoretical or interdisciplinary analyses.

We now invite: scholarly essays (2,000â€"5,000 words), short articles on
research or pedagogical-related themes, thought and opinion pieces. We
would also like to publish reviews and review essays of recent scholarly
books. If you are interested in reviewing for the journal, please send a
short statement of interest and academic biography (no more than 200
words) to the editor.
All typescript should be double-spaced, MLA referenced, sent on disk
saved as a Word document and accompanied by two hard copies of the text.

The submissions deadline for Issue 3 is 29th February 2008

Submissions may also be considered during March, but only after prior
arrangement with the editor. Please contact the editor with an abstract
or proposal if you wish to submit but have concerns about being unable to
make the deadline.
