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…
