Educare is a peer-reviewed journal published regularly at the Faculty of Education and Society,
Malmö University, Sweden since 2005. Educare publishes a wide range of research in education
and educational sciences and has long been considered a research forum for faculty,
practitioners and policy makers in Sweden. The journal strives to be of relevance to these
stakeholders not only through its choice of the published topics, but also through the clarity of
presentation. The journal accepts original submissions in Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and
English. We welcome both experienced and young researchers to contribute to the journal. All
articles are first reviewed by the editor-in-chief or the editorial board. In the next step, articles are
subjected to a double-blind review by two external reviewers. All submissions are judged on the
basis of their relevance from a professional and educational perspective, theoretical and
methodological contribution, critical insights and rhetorical quality. The journal is currently
registered in The Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers as a national
peer-reviewed journal within the field of education and educational research with scientific level 1.

We invite contributions to a special issue of Educare stemming from the conference theme of
National Forum for English Studies, held at Malmö University, 10-12 April 2019. This theme,
English in Transformation, highlights, on one hand, the dynamic nature of English literatures
cultures and language, and on the other, the ongoing transformation of English as a school
subject and an academic discipline. We welcome contributions in all fields of English studies –
linguistics, literature, culture, and language education – in the form of research articles, position
papers and book reviews. The proposed articles, papers and reviews should not have been
published elsewhere. Abstracts are to be submitted at
