The conference is organized in celebration of 80 years of English studies in Zagreb.

Call for Papers:

Zagreb, Croatia, 18-21 September 2014
English Studies as Archive and as Prospecting
(80 Years of English Studies in Zagreb)

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. While this calls for a nuanced approach to the questions of archive and cultural memory, as implicated in it is the probing of the futures that this knowledge fuels or envisions. Our conference welcomes a critical discussion of this issue, not least where it touches on the future of English studies themselves and the ways in which the humanities embedded in them depend on the encounter with other disciplines and agendas. The Department of English, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, on the occasion of its 80th anniversary invites papers encompassing but not limited to the following areas of interest:

- Theoretical linguistics
- Second language acquisition and teaching
- Applied linguistics
- Varieties of the English language
- English literary histories
- Critical theory
- American studies
- Postcolonial cultures
- Film and media studies
- Translation studies
- Scandinavian studies

Deadline for proposals: 15 March 2014
Notification of acceptance by 1 April 2014.

For additional information on deadlines, application procedure and fees, please refer to the conference web site: http://www.ffzg.unizg.hr/engconference14/ . Selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Relevant information will be posted and updated regularly.
