Peer English

Call for Papers

Peer English (ISSN 1474-8959) is a new, refereed academic journal
published by members of the research community in the Department of
English at the University of Leicester. Aiming to become the leading
journal in its field, Peer English is envisaged as a forum within which
the ideas and research that will go on to shape the future of English
Studies can be published and discussed.

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 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.

In recognition of the way that the creative and critical fields of English
increasingly inflect each other's ideas, Peer English will also feature
work by leading young poets and commentary from major literary

We invite academic papers (2000-5000 words), short articles on
research-related issues (funding, careers, the 'publish-or-perish'
culture), correspondence and opinion pieces. All typescript, including
correspondence, should be double-spaced, MLA referenced, sent on disk
saved as a Word document and accompanied by two hard copies of the text.

The submission deadline for Volume 1 is May 31st 2003.

Submissions may also be considered during June, but only after prior
arrangement with the editors. Please contact the editors with an abstract
or proposal if you wish to submit but have concerns about being unable to
