Call for Papers on Aging and Ageism

To be published as a book by the University of Debrecen Press.


In spring 2020 the Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies (HJEAS), an international scholarly journal archived on JSTOR and available around the world on ProQuest published a themed block of essays, Negotiating Aging and Ageism in English-speaking Literatures, Theatre and Performance Arts. Currently HJEAS is planning to restart its series of HJEAS Books that were so successful in the early 2000s under the rubric, HJEAS Books—New Series with an initial offering of three titles. The third in this new series will be edited by Professor Emerita Mária Kurdi, University of Pécs, Hungary under the title Negotiating Age: Aging and Ageism in Contemporary English-speaking Literatures and Theatre and all three are scheduled to be published by the University of Debrecen Press in either late 2021 or—perhaps, more likely—in early 2022.

To contribute an essay to this collection, please send a 200-400 word proposal accompanied by a current CV to the volume editor on or before 15 January, 2021. Applicants will be notified of their accepted proposals on or before 15 February and completed papers will be due 15 July, 2021.


Send all proposals and any queries to:
