Contributions are now invited for the 2009 issue of the MHRA Working
Papers in the Humanities, an international, refereed online journal. A
special, themed section of the journal will be dedicated to ‘Space/Time,’
though papers on other topics are also welcome.

The MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities
( is an electronic publication
forum intended to allow researchers to present initial findings or
hypotheses such as might, at a more advanced stage, become eligible for
publication in established scholarly journals. As such it will be of
particular interest to postgraduate researchers, though established
scholars are also invited to submit papers.

The fourth issue of the Working Papers will be published in November
2009, and the editorial panel aims to choose half of the papers from
submissions that relate to the theme of ‘Space/Time.’ Authors might
consider, among other things:

- Linear temporality and its disruptions
- History and historical narrative in language, literature, or culture
- Memory, recollection, nostalgia, forgetting
- Monumentalisation â€" fixing points in the landscape in perpetuity
- Place and space
- Science fiction (other spaces, other times)
- Outer space
- Engagement with landscape
- Language across/within borders
- Nations and nationalism as constructions in space and time
- Translation across space and time

Papers may come from any field in the ‘modern humanities’, which include
the modern and mediaeval languages, literatures, and cultures of Europe
(including English and the Slavonic languages, and the cultures of the
European diaspora). History, library studies, education and pedagogy, and
the medical application of linguistics are excluded.


In order to submit a paper, you are kindly requested to register as an
author on the journal’s website at; thereafter,
submissions may be made via the website or via email to the editors (see
