New Horizons in English Studies publishes research in English-language literatures (English, Anglo-Irish, Anglo-Scottish etc. literature, British literature, American, Canadian, Australian etc. literature, to name just a few), English-language linguistics or comparative linguistics that contains an English-language element, and cultural studies, including media studies. Within these broad areas, focus can be placed on topical issues but also on historical matters relevant to an understanding of the shape and functioning of English in a variety of uses. By disseminating results of research in these fields, the journal will aid students, teachers, and academics dealing with the English language in its contextual richness.
