Faces of English (AKA Fourth call for papers) - 29 June 2009

Dear All,

This is just to remind you that the (modified) deadline to submit your first drafts into the long-awaited next issue of our departmental volume (indeed a superb opportunity to fatten our lists of publications as well as to show off the diversity of our expertise for the world!) is the end of June, which is sort of *this week*. I don't want to seem pushy and I know everyone's as snowed under (yes, even in June...) as can be, but please send in your contributions as soon as possible, ideally *at the end of this week* at the latest. Also, note that:
- the theme of the volume is broad enough, I guess, to subsume even your ongoing research, be it of any sort, perhaps with a little bit of tailoring and a stretch of your imagination to invent a felicitous title for your paper. This means you don't necessarily have to write a paper from scratch.
- we're only expecting first drafts. The papers are going to undergo several rounds of reviewing before publication, so you will have a generous amount of opportunities later on to polish the details.
- as we're doing peer-reviewing in the first round, we can't really start distributing the papers to the reviewers until we have ALL the submissions, if we want to make sure the papers are fairly and evenly distributed among the contributors and every paper gets the most suitable reviewer, etc.
And:
We've already received a couple of papers, so the process has started - there's no turning back! :-)
Therefore, we're looking forward to receiving even more papers!
On behalf of the editorial board,
BBKati

faces of english (AKA Second call for papers) - 8 May 2009

Dear All,

On behalf of the editorial board, let me remind you that the extended deadline
for the submission of the first draft (not abstract!) of the papers meant to
appear in our Faces of English volume is the END OF JUNE. Recall that papers can
be submitted on ANY aspect of (the study) of English and of English-language
culture. In addition, note that the first draft will undergo several rounds of
reviewing so there'll be ample occasions to revise/finalise/polish it later on.
Looking forward to receiving the papers,
BBKati (&Kinga&Vera)

Modification to the Call - February 2009
The submission deadline has been extended to the end of June.

First call for papers - February 2009

Dear All,
 
After a few years' silence, we would like to revive the tradition of the Department's thematic volumes, in the form of this year's issue entitled Faces of English. The title has been intentionally devised to sound broad and general enough to subsume all aspects of the study of English: from variation/phenomena in language (in time and space) through characters/authors in literature to all the other forms or "faces" of English like the English of classrooms, English translated into other languages, English as the lingua franca of the world, English as academic or communicational or political power, or any combination of these (such as the variety of English used by one specific author or in one specific literary work), or just any other topic it may be (tightly or loosely) associated with – you are invited to freely use your imagination. We are planning to make it a peer-reviewed volume to ensure that authors specializing within the same field get the chance to learn about and comment on what their peers have written, and to encourage extensive cross-referencing within the volume. We are planning to proceed according to the following schedule:
 
February 2009 – first CFP
March 2009 – further CFPs to motivate/urge submissions
end of Apr 2009 – deadline for first draughts
May 2009 – peer-reviewing process and submission of final draughts
summer 2009 – copy-editing
autumn 2009 – publication of volume :-)
 
Accordingly, all staff working at the department (both full-timers and part-timers) are hereby cordially invited to submit papers into the volume from now on but NOT LATER THAN THE END OF APRIL. Electronic submissions should be sent as attachments to bbkati@yahoo.com in .rtf, .doc, .pdf, or .odt format. They should be NO LONGER THAN 15 PAGES, A4, double-spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman (or similar font) with standard margins (2.5 cm). Footnotes are preferred to endnotes, and references should be indicated in abbreviated form within the running text (rather than in footnotes in full). Sections should be numbered, and the final section of the paper should be entitled References.
 
The URL of the volume, documenting the progress of the work, will be /cikkek/books/faces-of-english
 
Looking forward to receiving your submissions,
The editorial board :-)
