Introduction

Op.Cit.: A Journal of Anglo-American Studies is the Journal of the Portuguese Association for Anglo-American Studies (APEAA) and is published annually. 

Op. Cit. offers a selection of high-quality research articles in Literatures in English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies, as well as in more recent but well-established areas such as Discourse Studies, Translation Studies and Performance Studies, from a multidisciplinary point of view.
