Postgraduate English: A Journal and Forum for Postgraduates in English

Postgraduate English is a professionally reviewed journal for postgraduate students of English. In addition to scholarly articles, we also invite book reviews, reflections on postgraduate teaching, and free-wheeling polemics on all things academic, from intramural malfeasance to the education cuts. These need not be refereed. They can be added to a burgeoning archive of material in the Forum section of the website, including interviews with academics, in which recently appointed academics discuss how they made the transition from Postgraduate to paid academic, and teaching tips and anecdotes. We are also happy to publish details of conferences or colloquia aimed at postgraduates.



Call for Papers, 15th August 2015


You are cordially invited to submit articles to the 31st edition of the Postgraduate English Journal, Durham University’s online peer-reviewed literary journal.
