Hwa Kang English Journal is a refereed scholarly journal, published by the Department of English Language and Literature, Chinese Culture University. Founded in 1995, the journal is now issued in April and October. Committed to promoting rigorous research and intellectual dialogue, the journal features articles that cover a wide range of scholarly concerns. We welcome original submissions from domestic and foreign scholars in the fields of literature, linguistics, English teaching, and cultural studies. In addition to articles on research, methodology and criticism, the journal also welcomes book reviews.
