When one looks at the history of English Studies there has been
a noticeable proliferation of research interests since the 1970s. As a
result of such development, attempts have been made to create a new basis
for communication and cooperation inside Anglistics and across
disciplines. Making a case for a Dialogic Anglistics is such an attempt. A
Dialogic Anglistics is based on a normative concept of dialogue aiming for
egalitarian forms of cooperation both inside, between and across
disciplines leading to the redefinition of old and creation of manifold
new directions for English Studies. In the nineteen articles presented in
this volume dialogic encounters are encouraged both within and between
different fields within Anglistics. Furthermore, dialogic links are
created with colleagues from other academic disciplines.
