New Perspectives in English and American Studies
Volume One: Literature
New Perspectives in English and American Studies. Volume One: Literature contains a selection of papers delivered at 14th International Conference on English and American Literature and Language, an international event organized every three years by the Institute of English Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. The editors divided the content into five broad sections reflecting the scope of academic reflection, the breadth of cultural material and the depth of its analysis.
The articles in the volume revolve around the topics of literary and cultural studies and their diversity mirrors the broad spectrum of the thematic panels of the conference.
These included, among others, Medievalism in Literature, James Joyce Studies, The Contemporary Historical Novel and Multimodality. Aside from these thematic sessions, a number of general sessions dedicated to a wide spectrum of topics pertinent to English and American studies was held – in particular, the issues of the individual’s perspective upon collective history, regional myths as well as the pivotal new historical awareness.
