The influence of colonization and the mass media has left its mark on
African language policies and communication, making way for a gradual
shift towards English in Africa due to its prestige as the globalizing
language. The future of African languages and cultures are hereby

44th International Congress on Medieval Studies
Call for Papers: Anglo-Saxon Space: Material, Cultural, Symbolic

In recent years, space - in all its various forms - has become a vital
category for medieval studies. We welcome proposals for papers across a
range of approaches to Anglo-Saxon space, including physical, visual,
textual, geographical, spiritual, social and imaginary. In continuing this
series of sessions, which have fun with great success for the past four
years, we hope to bring together more Anglo-Saxon scholars doing such work,
and foster further connections within the "space" of such exchanges.

Call for Papers

Prose Studies is a journal for discussion of the history, theory and
criticism of non-fictional prose of all periods.

While the journal publishes studies of such recognized genres of non-
fiction as autobiography, biography, the sermon, the essay, the letter,
the journal etc., it also aims to promote the study of non-fictional prose
as an important component in the profession's ongoing re-configuration of
the categories and canons of literature. Interdisciplinary studies,
articles on non-canonical texts and essays on the theory and practice of
discourse are also included.
