Société des Anglicistes de l'Enseignement Supérieur

La Société des Anglicistes de l’Enseignement Supérieur

The SAES  (Société des Anglicistes de l’Enseignement Supérieur)  provides opportunities for those researching and teaching English language, literatures in English and cultures of English-speaking peoples to exchange information, discuss issues of common professional interest and work together.

The SAES has nearly thirty affiliated societies  specialising in particular areas of English studies. In association with the AFEA (Association Française d’Études Américaines), the SAES provides research grants to doctoral students and teachers. The SAES is a member of ESSE (The European Society of the Study of English).

Angles

Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World is an international online peer-reviewed journal published bi-annually by the SAES. This interdisciplinary journal has a triple aim: to encourage innovative interdisciplinary research; to make cutting-edge research freely available; to make full use of the possibilities offered by digital publication by encouraging the use of different modes of expression: text, image, video, podcasts, hyperlinks…

Annual Conference

The SAES organises an annual conference which is held every June in a French university. Some of the workshops are held in English, others in French.  For more information, and subscription details,  see Congrès Annuel.

The 2017 Conference will be held at the Université of Reims Champagne-Ardenne, on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd June.

The conference theme is “(re)construction(s)”

 

Communication

Our members  benefit from an internal mail system (Messagerie) that allows them to contact all other registered members by e-mail.  Members receive frequent messages concerning teaching appointments, forthcoming conferences, recent publications, as well as other information relevant to the English-speaking world. They also have access to our  on-line interactive directory, which contains the names, adresses, e-mail addreses and research specialities of all our members.  For more information on this feature, see Espace  adhérents.

 

Events

As well as our  annual conference, held every June in a French university, we organise a two day event every September, for members of the SAES and members of our affiliated societies. See Journées de Septembre.

Our site offers a comprehensive list of forthcoming conferences (“colloques”) dealing with research and teaching of the English language, literatures in English and cultures of English-speaking peoples. Most of the calls for papers have an English version. See Colloques et Journées d’études    There is also a list of conferences that deal specifically with parts of the national syllabus connected to France’s national teaching examinations, the agrégation externe and agrégation interne ; see Colloques et Journées d’études sur les programmes de concours.
