About Us

Welcome to the Online Home of Connotations
Connotations wants to encourage scholarly communication in the field of English Literature (from the Middle English period to the present). It is an international, refereed journal which focuses on the semantic and stylistic energy of the language of literature in a historical perspective and aims to represent different approaches.

Each issue consists of articles and a forum for discussion. The forum presents, for instance, research in progress, critical hypotheses, responses to articles (published in Connotations or elsewhere) as well as to recent books.

Contributions will be published within six months after submission so that discussion can begin without delay. Connotations has no APC (article processing charge) for article submission.

Connotations is published twice a year by the Connotations Society and by Waxmann Verlag M√ľnster / New York. All contributions are also made freely available one this website. Contributions should be forwarded to the Editors by e-mail.

Connotations is a member of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals. Contributions are indexed, for example, in the MLA Bibliography, the World Shakespeare Bibliography and the IBZ/IBR.
