Abstract

This volume arises from a collaborative project on English Studies in Bulgarian and Romanian higher education which began in 2007, the year when both countries formally joined the European Union. Four broad areas of research and discussion are covered in it: Canon, Curriculum and Change; Pedagogy, Practice and Policy; Collaborations and Circulations; and the Comparative Perspective. There is an underlying sense of location which holds the diverse contributions to these areas and this volume as a whole together. However, to try and articulate this sense of location in a definite way would undermine the fluidity and openness with which it is expressed here. The located points of view which are extended in this volume from the specific theoretical, professional, institutional, historical, geopolitical, and other contexts on this side are suggestive of the critical potential entailed in reckoning with English Studies as a global discipline.
