Traditions and Transitions: this double volume features selected papers presented at a conference of the same name, organized by the Department of English and American Studies at St. Kliment Ohridski University of Sofia in September 2018. The conference aimed to celebrate a double anniversary: 90 years since the study of English was established as an autonomous degree subject within the Germanic Studies Department in 1928, and 130 years since the founding of the University of Sofia in 1888, the first higher academic institution in Bulgaria, opened shortly after the country’s liberation from Ottoman rule.

Part I and Part II of the current Volume One follow the exact title of the conference: Traditions and Transitions. Part I is called TRADITIONS, HISTORY AND CHANGE and traces the historical development of the two major branches of the English department – Literature and Linguistics, a more recent one – Culture Studies, as well as the fruitful exchange programme with Leeds University amidst the Cold War era. The last two papers look at current issues from the field of Applied Linguistics and Semiotics. All papers in this part come from distinguished professors emeriti who have worked at the English Department at Sofia University, or have had a long-term connection with it.
