Call for Papers for Special Forster Issue of ‘Language and Literary Studies of Warsaw’

Dear Friends and Colleagues, Members of the IEMFS,

This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of E. M. Forster’s death. The main part of the celebrations will soon take part in Cambridge during special academic conference. The International E. M. Forster Society has decided, however, to offer its members an opportunity to commemorate the anniversary in a publication. We have joined our forces with the academic journal Language and Literary Studies of Warsaw which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and together intend to produce a thematic issue dedicated to Forster. Our plan is to celebrate Forster by publishing a various collection of articles dealing with his work and life. The issue will appear under the auspices of the IEMFS but this invitation is open to all academics interested in Forster. Please, make sure to share this message with your friends and colleagues who might be interested in contributing to our project.

If you do not have an idea for an article but still would like to be a part of our undertaking, you may consider submitting reviews of Forster-related publications. If you need inspiration you may check bibliography of such books published since 2000 available here but remember that some of the books have already been reviewed for Polish Journal of English Studies. Naturally, it is possible to write another review of the same book.

We will also require your assistance as reviewers for the issue. We hope we can count on you during this summer and early autumn.

The schedule is moderately tight as we want to publish the issue in 2020. The deadline for submissions is July 15th, 2020. We will be extremely grateful if you could send in your submissions as soon as possible to allow for smooth processing. The plan is to review, select, and edit the articles during the summer and early autumn so as to be able to meet the intended publication date, at the very least online. The issue will be available online here and here as well as in several databases, and in print. The LLSW is an Open Access journal, it is available online, there are no processing or any other fees. All contributors will receive printed copies of the journal, copies will also be sent to several major academic libraries.

Submissions and technical inquiries should be sent to Notes for contributors are available here. Any questions may also be sent directly to Prof. Krzysztof Fordoński at
