A Anglo Saxonica reinventou-se

Anglo Saxonica reinventou-se.

Com uma linha de abordagem multidisciplinar, a revista tem vindo a conquistar um lugar na partilha de conhecimento a nível mundial, promovendo o diálogo entre as áreas geoculturais de língua inglesa.

Publicada pela Ubiquity Press, indexada na Scopus, ERIH Plus e MLA Directory of Periodicals, a Anglo Saxonica tem como objectivo continuar a afirmar-se como uma revista de referência internacional. Privilegiando a investigação original e inovadora, os volumes incluem artigos científicos, resenhas, entrevistas e escrita criativa.

Recentemente, a revista alargou a sua divulgação às redes sociais e criou um blog para a publicação de resenhas, podcasts ou textos de teor mais informal (máx. 300 palavras), em inglês ou português.

Queremos continuar a trilhar caminho. Gostaríamos de contar com a colaboração de todos os colegas para divulgar junto das suas redes de contactos (inter)nacionais este projecto editorial nascido da dedicação de várias gerações de investigadores desta instituição.

Para reforçar a internacionalização da revista, serão particularmente bem-vindas propostas para a organização de volumes temáticos (special issues) que resultem da colaboração entre os membros do CEAUL e investigadores estrangeiros internacionalmente reconhecidos como peritos em diferentes áreas de estudos multidisciplinares do inglês.

Poderá consultar o novo site da Anglo Saxonica, o blog, e acompanhar os posts no Twitter e Facebook da revista.

Call for Papers: II International Conference From Manuscript to Digital

II International Conference From Manuscript to Digital:

World Wide English Literature and World Wide Literatures in English

University of Lincoln, Universidade de Lisboa, Universidad de Jaén

Jaén (Spain), 1-3 December, 2020

English studies in the United Kingdom, whether of literature or language, have been forced to undergo greater self-evaluation in the academy in recent years, both culturally as successive governments attempt to shift the focus of Higher Education more towards the sciences and away from Arts and Humanities, and politically as the dominance of England within a post-Brexit UK leads to deeper criticism of the role of English literature in relation to Scotland, Wales and Ireland. As such, this call for papers represents an opportunity to frame some of those debates in a wider context and to shift the locus of English studies away from Anglophone countries to a European context and towards global literatures in English.

To that end, this second International Conference From Manuscript to Digital: World Wide English Literature and World Wide Literatures in English, jointly organized by the Universities of Lincoln (UK), Lisbon (Portugal) and Jaén (Spain), intends to gather scholars from these and other countries in order to examine a wide variety of cultural –ie, textual and/or visual – artefacts belonging to the field of English studies at large. By this we mean those texts produced in English in such diverse contexts as, say, the UK, the United States and Canada, Ireland, Australia, Nigeria, South Africa or India, among others. And although all sorts of different theoretical and critical approaches are welcome, the overt intention of this Conference will be to develop what we would like to call an European approach to English studies. The rationale behind this endeavour has to do with our intention to contribute to the strengthening of the links between the study of English language and literature in Britain and globally,  as a way to provide some common ground for the relations between various world countries in a post-Brexit scenario. This approach, then, we will call ‘Anglistics’, which according to the Oxford English Dictionary is the term to be employed “[c]hiefly in or with reference to continental Europe” (our emphasis) when addressing “the study of English language or literature” precisely.

Thematic pannels:

  • (Re)read and (re)interpreted in a global age
  • Facing the new map of Europe
  • In the digital post-modern age
  • Interacting with visual culture through the ages
  • The cradle of language and linguistic perspectives
  • Questioning identities
  • Lost (and found?) in translation
  • At the crossroads with transdisciplinary approaches

Proposals must be sent as an e-mail attachment to mantodigit20[at]ujaen.es until 1 July 2020, and must contain the following information:

Extended deadline: 15  September 2020

  • The full title of your paper.
  • A 200-word abstract.
  • Any technical requirements for the presentation (Please, save your power point as doc, docx or Mac. If you are using a Mac, please indicate and bring your own adapter cable).
  • Your name and institutional affiliation.
  • Your postal and e-mail addresses.
  • A short biographical note (100 words).

Due to the extraordinary situation we are living, the organizing commitee will be considered the possibility of presenting some of the papers on an online-format

Please, when sending the proposal make explicit whether your presentation will be face-to-face or online

ROAM – Representations of Home Creative Journal: call for creative submissions

Representations of Home

ROAM – Representations of Home Creative Journal

Call for Creative submissions:

As a result of the pandemic, the RHOME 2020 Conference on Dislocation (22-23 October 2020) has been postponed. However, the good news is RHOME will launch the first issue of its new creative journal, ROAM, later this year.

Now more than ever, in this time of social distancing and confinement, RHOME sees the need to continue its focus on the theme, the experience and the actuality of home, the place and abode that looms so large these days in the lives of everyone on the planet.

Our homes are being lived as never before, in different ways, as safe havens, sites of cosy domestic calm, or alternatively as places of containment, economic deprivation, even incarceration or violence. Many of us are separated from loved ones or deprived of our social gatherings and routines. We are also being challenged, being given time usually spent elsewhere to pass in our homes, to rediscover what our homes hold, explore new domestic skills, neglected hobbies, to sift and sort and to reassess our daily lives, what it is that makes up our selves, our values, and to recalibrate the interior and the exterior. This includes our broader social obligations, including to the less privileged and most threatened, the elderly, the disabled, the homeless in our home communities and abroad.  While social distancing has imposed severe economic challenges on communities, travel restrictions have created new opportunities, a breathing place for nature and the environment, and re-evaluation of its place in our lives.

Our daily lives, with their humdrum of chores and challenges, are inspired by thought, creativity and the reinvention of forms, as evident in the social media. Randall Jarrell has written how poetry issues from “the dailiness of life,” (1955) and John Burnside how, at times of profound reassessment, it is a kind of “scavenging” (2018, 101) from our lives lived, in Rilke’s “here and below.”

In the spirit of our creative session in RHOME 2017, and in the light of these challenging new times, RHOME invites past and future participants to submit creative proposals inspired by home as it is being experienced in these days. The following themes might be addressed:

  • home and seclusion, haven, safety
  • home and containment, separation and exile
  • home and self, affect, self-development
  • home and community, egotism and altruism
  • home and nature, the environment
  • home and the body, health, illness, isolation

Creative pieces can be in the form of unpublished poems, short fiction, memoir, essay, photos or film. Proposals should be brief: prose should not exceed 1000 words, poetry ca. 25 lines (maximum 3 poems), film (5-10 minutes) and photos (maximum 3, high resolution, at least 2000 pix). Authors are welcome to record readings of their written work to be available on-line.

As part of the ongoing RHOME project, submissions will be considered for publication in RHOME’s on-line creative journal ROAM to be issued in Autumn 2020.

Submissions along with a bionote of 50 words should be sent to Representations of Home project by 31/08/2020 with a subject heading “ROAM 2020 Creative submissions”. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 30/09/2020.
