Dear IASIL members,

Let me draw your attention to a publication opportunity:

HJEAS (The Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies), a semiannual journal published by the Institute of English and American Studies, Debrecen University, Hungary, ed. by Donald E. Morse – available world-wide through JSTOR and ProQuest – solicits papers in Irish, English and American Studies.

Although the journal does not have an exclusively Irish profile, it has published several special Irish issues (1996.2, 2002.1, 2004.1-2 and a 2009 issue containing an Irish thematic block). The high quality of the essays published in HJEAS is ensured by the use of a double blind peer reviewing process and been demonstrated by ten of out of the fifteen essays in the volume Brian Friel’s Dramatic Artistry: The Work Has Value” published by Carysfort Press in 2006 (eds. Donald E. Morse, Csilla Bertha and Mária Kurdi) appeared first in various issues of HJEAS.

Michael Parker is currently guest-editing a thematic block in honour of Seamus Heaney (planned for 2015.2), and we are hoping to keep the whole issue within the field of Irish Studies (the thematic block complemented by 4-5 further essays on miscellaneous topics).

We accept submissions non-stop, but the deadline for submitting articles for the planned Irish issue is 15 June 2015. I would greatly appreciate if you could inform me about your intention to submit an article for the planned Irish issue until the end of April. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at:

Articles should be submitted to: and should preferably be 5,000-7,000 words in length with no submitted article exceeding 10,000 words. As for style, papers in the field of literary, film, or cultural studies, should consult the MLA stylesheet (7th edition), while papers in the field of historical studies, should follow the Chicago manual of style (16th edition).

Kindest regards,

Marianna Gula
