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.

Institute of English Studies Petition

Dear SDAŠ members,

Please consider signing the petition described below.

 

Dear All

You may have heard about the proposed closure of the Institute of English Studies which is part of the School of Advanced Study at the University of London. A Steering Group to oppose this has been set up, co-chaired by Professor Anne Varty (Head of the Department of English at Royal Holloway University of London) and Professor Gordon Campbell, DLitt, FBA (Professor of Renaissance Studies at Leicester University).

The Steering Group (of which I am a member) has set up a website at http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/professor-sir-adrian-smith-abandon-the-recommendation-to-break-up-the-institute-of-english-studies-2 in the form of a petition calling for this decision to be stopped. I am attaching a brief document that gives some further information on the subject and some links that may be of interest. We very much hope that you will be able to give us your support by signing the petition, by writing to the Vice-Chancellor and by passing this message on to interested parties.

Yours faithfully
Henry Woudhuysen
On behalf of the Save the IES Steering Group

Co-Chairs:
Professor Anne Varty (Head of the Department of English Royal Holloway University of London)
Professor Gordon Campbell DLitt, FBA (Professor of Renaissance Studies, University of Leicester)
