Zagreb Conference 2014

ENGLISH STUDIES AS ARCHIVE AND AS PROSPECTING
(80 Years of English Studies in Zagreb)
Zagreb, Croatia, 18-21 September 2014

Perhaps the most exciting problem that English studies are facing today is coming to terms with the complexities of knowledge produced and dominated by the English speaking worlds in the past two and a half centuries. This conference welcomes a critical discussion of this issue, and invites papers encompassing but not limited to the following areas of interest: English Literary Histories, Critical Theory, American Studies, Postcolonial Cultures, Film and Media Studies, Theoretical Linguistics, Second Language Acquisition and Teaching, Applied Linguistics, Varieties of the English Language, Translation Studies, and Scandinavian Studies.
