New Horizons in English Studies vol. 9/2024


New Horizons in English Studies (, indexed in MLA International Bibliography and ERIH+) invites submissions to the 9/2024 issue, welcoming previously unpublished research papers and reviews in the broadly understood field of literary, media and cultural studies (L, M & C). The scope of subjects includes but is not limited to the following:

- how literature, media and culture (L, M & C) help us to better understand and react to the major challenges of our time, including the COVID-19 pandemic, various ecological crises, climate change, globalisation, income inequality, gender inequality, fake news, racism, misogyny, etc.,

- how L, M & C can prove useful in rethinking individualism, identity, and human agency in the Anthropocene,

- how L, M & C engage questions of technology and progress, reframing the entrenched dichotomy of science and humanities,

- how L, M & C facilitate development of novel modes of the imagination, emphasizing its crucial role in today’s public debate, education, and criticism,

- how L, M & C reinvent themselves through formal experimentation, attention to hitherto unexplored thematic regions, and development of links with other arts, the digital world, and popular culture,

- how L, M & C move across languages and cultures through translation, adaptation, and various modes of intertextuality,

- how the genre system is challenged and revised, embracing a variety of hybrid forms and dismantling the hierarchy of high and low L, M & C.
