Ọyẹ́: Journal of Language, Literature and Popular Culture is an academic journal domiciled in the Department of English and Literary Studies of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. It seeks to publish insightful research from established and emerging scholars on all aspects of English language, literature and popular culture, especially as it relates to Africa and the Black Diaspora. For its next edition which will be published in April 2020, Ọyẹ́ invites interested researchers and scholars to submit completed papers on any aspect of language, literature and popular culture. We are especially interested in submissions with an interdisciplinary focus.
Papers might examine, but are not limited to issues like the intersection of hip hop and linguistics; connections between urban myth and contemporary fiction; the nexus of social media, language and literature, mutually constitutive relationships between film and fiction, Nollywood and the emergence of a Nigerian popular culture, among others.
Submissions should come with 200-word abstracts, must not be longer than 6,000 words (including Abstract, Works Cited and Notes), typed in Times New Roman 12-point font, be double-spaced, and should follow the MLA Handbook (7th Edition) in-text format. All submissions should be sent to email@example.com not later than Tuesday, March 31, 2020, and should come with a confirmation that they are not under consideration elsewhere. For further information, please contact Dr. Harry Olufunwa at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call/sms 234-8037180425 and 234-8059734905.
