This double blind peer-reviewed journal has since its foundation fostered a keen
interest in the latest innovative approaches and provided a forum for the
discussion of critical and interdisciplinary approaches. Launched in Naples in
1979 by the late Fernando Ferrara as a separate journal, Anglistica AION is an
offshoot of “A.I.O.N. Sezione Germanica”, the Annals of the Istituto Universitario
Orientale (now Università degli studi di Napoli “L’Orientale”). The Germanic
Section, founded in 1958, gradually developed separate sectors devoted to the
different linguistic areas; in 1974 Anglistica was published for the first time. It
was edited by Fernando Ferrara till 1996 and under the direction of Lidia Curti,
Jane Wilkinson, and Anna Maria Cimitile, Anglistica AION: An Interdisciplinary
Journal has provided an important public intellectual space for interdisciplinary
approaches to the English language, literature and culture, such as Cultural
Studies, Post-colonial, Gender and Ecocritical Studies, Old and New Media
Studies, and lately Critical Discourse Analysis and World Englishes. The Journal is
renowned for its rich mix of the scholarly and the artistic and continues to
engage and cultivate differential conversations and cultural interests while
maintaining its core commitment to scientific excellence.
