Do you want to get published, become an editor, or simply become involved with a new, exciting academic project?

After publishing its first issue in April of 2017, the editors at Languages, Texts, and Society are busily preparing for Issue 2, due early in 2018. There are submissions to sort through, articles to be edited and formatted, book reviews to be collated, peer reviewers to find, and style templates to be applied. Now that we’ve started a new academic year, we are looking to spread the word about our exciting project, and get some new postgraduates on board.

LTS is an online, peer-reviewed, open-access postgraduate journal evaluating how communications, languages and texts are shaped by and shape society, including:

  • Innovative methods to produce, collect and study texts
  • Texts in professional and educational contexts
  • How texts shape experience and cultural legacy
  • Translation of languages and cultures

There are many ways you can get involved with our journal that allow you to practice and develop a variety of skills. We have a number of roles and opportunities available. For instance, you could join our editorial team, help to market the journal at various PG events and on social media, or volunteer to be a peer-reviewer. Alternatively, you could practice your academic writing skills and submit an article, book review, or translation to the journal.

The journal is still in its early stages, and we are constantly looking for ways in which we can further develop the journal, and get more postgraduates involved in one way or another. We will be holding a welcome event for both new and returning postgraduate students in the Faculty of Arts on 17th October in Trent C10b from 16.30-18.30. If you are interested in being involved in the journal in any way and would like to find out more about what we do, please do come along. You can also e-mail us at any time on pg-lts@nottingham.ac.uk

We look forward to meeting some of you at the welcome event!
Editors: Melanie Fitton-Hayward (Classics), Katie Harrison (CLAS), Abdulmalik Ofemile (English), Katrina Wilkins (English)
