ESC: English Studies in Canada

The mandate of ESC is "to reflect the discipline back to itself." The journal publishes articles that make a clear and original contribution to scholarly and theoretical debates of current interest and ongoing significance to members of the discipline of English Studies, as well as related fields of inquiry. ESC welcomes submissions on literature, language, culture, and theory. We are particularly interested in contributions that adopt an interdisciplinary approach or reflect the turn to cultural studies, submissions which make excellent and rigorous use of more traditional scholarly methodologies, and submissions which address emergent areas of the discipline. ESC’s goal is to be a venue of first-choice for publication and internationally recognized as one of the leading journals in the discipline of English Studies.
