The first ESSE Doctoral Symposium will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece on 28-29 August 2017.
The Symposium is designed to provide a platform for young scholars to present their work, specifically for PhD students who are writing their theses in English Studies and are at least in the second year of their doctoral studies at the time of the Symposium in question. They are invited to make a brief presentation of their work in progress in one of three areas, known as strands:
- English Language & Linguistics,
- Literatures in English, and
- Cultural & Area Studies.

Literature has been talked of as mirroring the society. In that sense, the social, political and cultural aspects of society have found expression in it.

The high tide of globalization has further impacted the outlook and methodology of literature. The present scenario identifies multiple concerns in literature, produced in a melange of styles, and the diversity is only growing with each passing day. It is, therefore, meaningful to discuss the emergence of latest trends in literature produced in English, whether in India or abroad. Read more

През настоящата 2016 г. се навършват 400 години от смъртта на Сервантес и Шекспир – велики таланти, които осветляват пътя на модерността и жалонират литературата, изкуствата и творческата мисъл до днес.
