Call for Papers

Peer English (ISSN 1746-5261) is a refereed academic journal, now in its
fourth 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 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.

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, sent
on disk saved as a Word document and accompanied by two hard copies of
the text.

The submission deadline for Volume 4 is 25 May 2009.

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

Contributions should be sent to:

A full style sheet of submission guidelines is available by email and
should be requested before submitting final copy.
