    The journal English Literature: Theories, Interpretations, Contexts, published at the University of Venice Ca’ Foscari, invites scholars to send article proposals on  “Adapting literary works“.
    We’ll be happy to consider essays on all aspects of the relationship between English literature/literatures in English and their adaptations for various media (films, series, games, videos, cultural merchandise, etc.) for their publication in the December 2019 issue of the journal. The articles will ideally complete the series of articles in the journal devoted to adaptation, published in the 2018 issue (see here). The deadline for sending your article proposal is July 10th, 2019.
    To send a proposal, please refer to the journal webpage and click on “Contacts – subscriptions -proposals”, fill in the form complete with proposed title and abstract, and send it to
    Alternatively, you can send your title and abstract of proposed article to the journal’s main editor, prof. Flavio Gregori:  
    You will receive an email with information on how to access the journal website and create your personal webpage, where you will upload the article and receive information about the peer reviewing and the publication process.
    The deadline for uploading your article will be October 15th, 2019. The required length of articles is between 5000 and 6000 words. For the stylesheet please see:
    All proposed articles will go through double-blind revision by two peers. You will see the outcome of the revision on your personal page within 40 days from the submission of your article.
    English literature started its publication in December 2014, and is a fully open access journal. It is indexed in Scopus, MLA Directory of periodicals, ERIH-plus, Crossref, DOAJ,  and other databases. Its editorial and advisory boards can be seen here: In full compliance with open-access policies, the journal applies no costs for publication of articles to contributors. Contributors can keep their articles’ copyrights and are allowed to re-use their articles for further publication, provided they do not publish the same or modified version before one full year from its publication on English Literature. English Literature’s policy is inspired by the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) ethical code. If you have any query concerning the journal or the present call, please write to or to
