The Institute of Literary Studies and Institute of Linguistics at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin and the Polish Association for the Study of English have the honour to invite all scholars working within the area of English studies to the 29th annual conference of The Polish Association for the Study of English, which will take place in Lublin on 25-27 June 2020.
The traditional apprenticeship model is a well-documented paradigm for engaging undergraduates in research. In recent years, course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have become more common. Many factors influence a mentor’s ability to use these models, and sometimes alternative paths are needed to engage in undergraduate research. The winter 2020 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore these nontraditional approaches to undergraduate research.
Topics of interest include the following:

Call for Topics for Three Special Issues of European Journal of English Studies (Volume 26, to be published in 2022)
We are excited to announce that this year’s Keystone DH will be held at Temple University in Philadelphia. Keystone DH is an annual conference and a network of institutions and practitioners committed to advancing collaborative scholarship in digital humanities research and pedagogy across the Mid-Atlantic.
Proposals are welcome on any aspect of digital technologies and their application to the humanities and/or social sciences. We highly encourage projects that focus on the collaborative nature of research and teaching. Senior scholars should foreground the labor of students, librarians, and/or the community that sustained the project. We especially welcome proposals with representative and inclusive speaker involvement.
The destiny of English / englishes was perhaps foreshadowed long back in 1975 by George Steiner in his Presidential Address to the English Association in London: “…the linguistic centre of English has shifted”. This shifting terrain came to be further reified in terms of expansive movements beyond the borders of traditionally recognised territories.
With the exhaustion of postcolonial models, it is time we tried to break free of conventional straitjackets. In a neo-liberalist world order, that almost runs co-extensive with the free market economy and transnational political diplomacy, cultural disciplinary models are establishing an innovative paradigm shift.
