Call for Papers: ELOPE XII – Spring (2015)

Call for Papers: Negotiating Cultural Encounters with the English-Speaking World

ELOPE (English Language Overseas Perspectives and Enquiries), a double-blind, peer-reviewed academic journal, publishes original research articles, studies and essays that address issues of English language, literature, teaching and translation. The 2015 special issue invites contributors to submit articles that take a close and critical look at the cultural differences and barriers encountered in interaction with English-speaking countries and the specificities of English-mediated intercultural communication. Cultural, i.e. socially constructed concepts can be analysed not only as they relate to the pervasive British and American cultures, but also locally (e.g. Scotland, Wales, Ireland) and internationally (World Englishes, English as a lingua franca).

Papers should be between 5,000 and 8,000 worlds in length, with an abstract of 150–180 words. They should conform to the journal’s style sheet available at http://www.sdas.edus.si/elope.html and should be sent to guest editors andrej.stopar@ff.uni-lj.si and monika.kavalir@ff.uni-lj.si by 31 January 2015. Prospective authors are encouraged to contact the guest editors with regard to possible article themes or other inquiries.
