Focus and Scope

ESC currently welcomes submissions on any topic which falls under the disciplinary purview of "English Studies" broadly understood. Submissions are by electronic means only. All submissions should include a 100 word abstract and a 50 word biographical note (spaces for these are available during the online submission process). Since authors’ names are not revealed to referees during assessment, the title but not the author’s name should appear on the uploaded article.

All articles and reviews must be prepared using parenthetical documentation and including a list of works cited as described in the MLA Style Manual.
