English Forum: Journal of the Department of English, Gauhati University 2018



 English Forum: Journal of the Department of English, Gauhati University, invites original and well- researched papers for its 2018 Issue. The journal which is published annually invites scholars to contribute papers on English Literature, other literatures in English, and texts from various cultures translated into English. Texts are never produced in a vacuum and the understanding of any text entails the discovery of numerous themes/issues that are germane to its production. Moreover texts are also read and understood in a variegated environment provoking multiple readings.  Hence the Journal seeks papers which may situate texts in an interdisciplinary framework, point out their dialogue with the social, cultural and historical conditions of their production and grapple with ideas like representation, identity, subjectivity, nationhood, gender, culture, etc.

English Forum: Journal of the Department of English, Gauhati University, which has been in circulation since 1996, is a peer-reviewed, UGC approved and indexed journal. All papers submit for publications undergo a two-tier process of screening. Initially all submissions are screened by the editorial board after which selected papers are sent for blind peer review. Only those whose papers have been selected are intimated with regard to any changes or modifications sought by the reviewer. No other correspondence is initiated by the journal with authors whose papers have not been selected. All submissions to the journal must be between 5000 and 8000 words, conform to the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (Seventh Edition) and endnotes, when used, should be entered manually and not with the automatic Notes and References insertion function of MS Word. Articles sent to English Forum should not have been submitted for publication elsewhere. Book reviews are also welcome, but they should have the necessary publication details and should not exceed 2000 words.  All papers submitted for consideration will be scanned for plagiarized materials.

All contributions should be mailed to lalankishoresingh@gmail.com by March 30, 2018.
