Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed academic journal, now in its seventh year, published by members of the School of English at the University of Leicester. Our remit is to publish leading research from those academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study, post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the community. This approach also includes the notion of ‘work in progress’ and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or Heads of Departments.
Published annually, and soon to be available as online content, Peer English embraces not only the full range of subject coverage within the field of English Studies, but also the increasingly wide range of approaches and perspectives that can be brought to bear upon the discipline. We welcome, therefore, both traditional and modern approaches to the field, from close critical readings of literary texts, to interdisciplinary approaches or cross-subject analyses. Further information is available here: http://www.le.ac.uk/engassoc/publications/peerenglish.html
We invite academic papers (2000-5000 words), short articles on research-related issues (funding, careers, the ‘publish-or-perish’ culture), and reviews and review-essays of recent publications. All typescript, including correspondence, should be double-spaced, MLA referenced, and saved as a Word document. Hard copies must be accompanied by at least one copy of the text saved on to disk or CDR. We welcome electronic submissions by email. All submissions must be accompanied by a postal address.
The submission deadline for Volume 8 is 1 October 2011.
Contributions should be sent to:
Dr Ben Parsons,
Editor, Peer English,
School of English,
University of Leicester,
Leicester,
LE1 7RH
Email: bptutor@yahoo.co.uk
A full style sheet of submission guidelines is available by email and should be requested before submitting final copy.
