Book description

English is now a global phenomenon no longer defined by fixed territorial, cultural and social functions. The Routledge Companion to English Studies provides an authoritative overview of the subject area. Taking into account the changing conceptualisations of English, this Companion considers both historical trajectories and contemporary perspectives whilst also showcasing the state-of-the-art contributions made by the established scholars of the field.

The Routledge Companion to English Studies:

  • provides a set of broad perspectives on English as a subject of study and research  
  • highlights the importance of the link between English and other languages within the concepts of multilingualism and polylingualism 
  • investigates the use of language in communication through the medium of digital technology covering key issues such as Digital Literacies, Multimodal Literacies and Games and Broadcast Language 
  • explores the role of English in education taking account of social, ethnographic and global perspectives on pedagogical issues.

This collection of thirty-four newly commissioned articles provides a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the dynamic and diverse field of English Studies and will be an invaluable text for advanced students and researchers in this area.
