2nd Call for Papers:

EXTENDED DEADLINE 28 February 2022:
For a seminar dedicated to the study of Charles Darwin's texts at the next conference of the European Society for the Study of English (ESSE) in the picturesque city of Mainz (Germany) (ESSE Conference 2022 Mainz) we invite paper proposals in the domains of translation and comparative studies, reception studies and also linguistics. Papers on linguistic research questions applied to both the original work and the translations of Darwin’s work are welcome. We also welcome proposals that probe into textual aspects of the discursive relation, for example reader response theory within a Christian framework as well as an emerging atheist stance, literary appropriations of Darwin’s work and reactions of contemporary readers in the twenty-first century, Systemic Functional analyses of the textual function, etc. A full description of seminar no. 44 and call for papers can be found on the conference website ( )
