IAM PLEASED AND HONOURED to present this double issue of English Studies in Canada, the very first fully shepherded issue of the journal since it moved to the University of Western Ontario in 2017. Needless to say, taking on a journal of this stature after its long and illustrious tenure at the University of Alberta has been a daunting and humbling task for the Western team, and involved a steep learning curve—but it's also been a truly rewarding experience. The opportunity to encounter and read the work of so many exciting and rigorous scholars in our field not only reinforces my commitment to our discipline, but also demonstrates, on an almost daily basis, how rich your contribution continues to be.
We are already working on the next number of esc, a special issue that we are hoping to publish by the end of 2019.
We thank you for your continued support of English Studies in Canada. We also encourage you to submit your articles for consideration; this journal depends entirely on the vibrance and curiosity of its community of scholars, and we intend to make esc an increasingly interesting and cosmopolitan home for that community's work over the next few years. We hope you'll join us in the effort. [End Page 1] Allan Pero Western University
