Postgraduate English (UK): A Journal and Forum for Postgraduates in
English in the UK and Europe.
Papers are invited for issue no. 8 of this journal (September 2003)
for a deadline of 18 July 2003.
Postgraduates in English in the UK or in any European country are
welcome to submit papers concerning any aspect of English Studies of up
to 7,000 words. Previous issues have included discussions of, among
others, Salman Rushdie, Philip Larkin, Michele Roberts, Joseph Conrad
and Doris Lessing, while issue 7 includes papers on King Lear and the
influence of the Frankenstein myth on the work of Stephen King.
All papers are refereed by members of our editorial board before being
accepted for publication, and should conform to MLA guidelines in
presentation. PAPERS SHOULD BE DESPATCHED NO LATER THAN THE DEADLINE OF
July 18 2003.
UPDATING FROM THE LAST ISSUE: we continue to invite contributions on the
experiences of postgraduates applying for jobs and/or research
fellowships as they near the end of their doctoral theses. These will
be added to our "Forum" section on postgraduate experience in the UK and
Europe, which already includes pieces of academic journalism on
teaching, publishing and other issues of interest to postgraduates. A
new addition to "Forum" is the newly-published report by the English
Subject Centre, showing the results of its study of graduate employment
and careers for English graduates.
All e-mails and postal correspondence should be addressed to Richard
Brewster (editor) at r.j.brewster_at_dur.ac.uk or:
