Final Call for Papers (Deadline Extended)

We are pleased to announce that the deadline for submissions of
contributions to ABC, the journal of the Academic Anglophone Society of
Romania, has been extended to May 15. This forthcoming issue is a jubilee
edition marking ten years of publishing existence. To celebrate this
exciting occasion of ABC’s 10th anniversary, we invite provocative
submissions, in the form of articles, creative-critical essays, interviews,
book reviews, conference presentations and research projects descriptions
that seek to take Anglophone studies to a new level of enquiry across
disciplinary boundaries.

The jubilee is an occasion to draw a line and consider developments,
continuities and new departures. Aiming to feature a wider selection of new
writing in English, in our future issues, we expect to place stronger
emphasis on unconventional insights into the practice and theory of
Creative Writing. It gives us great pleasure to preview ABC’s new feature,
the academic diary, meant to record impressions of and reflections on the
cultures of the academia as experienced by the visiting lecturer and global
conference goer.

ABC is an international, peer-reviewed journal that seeks to explore
cross-disciplinary developments in Anglophone Studies in the changing
environment forged by digital media, advanced technologies and global
knowledge. Our primary goal is to contribute fresh angles to the academic
subject of English by promoting shape-changing research across conventional
boundaries. As well as providing innovative approaches to influential
crosscurrents in current thinking, the journal sets out to connect work by
scholars conducting advanced research in the theoretical humanities. Within
the proposed range of diversity, our major scope is to provide close
examinations and lucid analyses of the role and future of the academic
institutions at the cutting edge of high-tech. With its wide subject range,
ABC aims to become one of the premium electronic journals resources of
Romanian academia. With this end in view, we especially invite
contributions in the fields of Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies,
Postcolonial Theory, Social and Political Science, Cultural Anthropology,
Area Studies, Multimedia and Digital Arts.

Guidelines for Contributors:
ABC seeks quality submissions of work in the entire spectrum of the
humanities. The review process is blind: articles are sent out to subject
specialists for reviewing anonymously and we leave it up to the reviewers
to choose whether or not to reveal themselves to you. You are strongly
encouraged to submit exciting and broad-ranging original articles that have
not been published elsewhere, nor are currently under review in any other
refereed journal. We regret we are unable to accept multiple submissions.
You may submit papers that have been presented in conferences only if the
papers have been thoroughly revised or extended to engage a theme that fits
the ABC profile. A chief objective of the journal is to minimise the time
for paper processing and to expedite printing; therefore, electronic
submission of papers in final form is strongly recommended. Please email
your contribution to abc.journal_at_ulbsibiu.ro before the closing date.
Alternatively, manuscripts should be sent in triplicate to the Editorial
Office (see address below) as hard copy and on CD Rom. Submit three copies
of your double-spaced, single-sided manuscript, along with the originals of
illustrations, drawings, and tables. The first page of the manuscript
should carry the title, names of authors, institutional affiliations, a
brief but detailed 200-word abstract, and ten key words/concepts. The
normal word-limit for articles is 7500 words including notes. Please
include a brief 200-word biography for our Notes on Contributors along with
contact information. Only the materials styled according to the latest
(6th) edition of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers will be
considered for publication. For detailed instructions for preparing your
contribution and a sense of format, topics of interest to us and targeted
audience, you may wish to consult the journal's previous issues and style
files at http://abcjournal.ulbsibiu.ro. Contributions can include articles,
in-depth interviews with both established and emerging thinkers and
