    The calls for papers for the three issues of volume 20 are now available.

    Proposals for Special Issues:
    The general editors welcome proposals for special issues from prospective guest editors at any time.

    The European Journal of English Studies
    (EJES), is published by ESSE in cooperation with Routledge.

    There has been a slight change in the policy of the Editors of EJES concerning conference proceedings:

    "Although EJES will continue not to publish proceedings as such, the Editors are prepared to consider proposals based on conferences, so long as space is reserved in the issue for contributions from scholars who did not participate in the event."

    Are you launching a new journal or e-journal?
    NEW: The ESSE website will announce this.
    See more information here.

    NEW: ESSE Book grants
    Recognising that it is difficult in some situations to obtain access to books necessary for research without purchasing them, and recognising also that some ESSE members have financial difficulties, ESSE has decided to award some small grants to its members for the purchase of books in connection with specific research projects.
    More information here.

    ESSE is glad to announce that the ESSE Photo Gallery is back on line.
    In it, you can find photographs of the ESSE Conferences and the ESSE Board meetings over the past 10 years (starting with the Oxford Board meeting, 2003): over 1,200 photos are available.
    The ESSE Webmaster would be delighted if he was able to get hold of more photos of any of those events, and even more of photos of the previous events. The ESSE records unfortunately hold no photos of any Board meeting or of any Conference prior to 2003.
