Editor's Note

Culture generates an infinity of signs, whose meanings are shaped in and communicated via texts which, in turn, carry traces of other texts. These dialogic palimpsests which encode representations and allow for a multitude of possible readings ask for interpretative efforts, a part of which are included in Cultural Intertexts.

It brings together articles resulting from the doctoral and post-doctoral research activities carried out by the students and the academic staff of the Doctoral School of Philology, Faculty of Letters, “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati, Romania. It also comprises a selection of contributions from representatives of other universities, doctoral schools and academic research centres, who have participated in the symposiums and workshops organised in Galati, or who have been involved in joint research and development projects.

The initiative of launching the present series of conferences and volumes of scientific papers belongs to the English Department of the Faculty of Letters, and the financial support is provided by the POSDRU /159/1.5/S/138963 Project, Sustainable Performance in Doctoral and Postdoctoral Research (PERFORM).

We address warm thanks to all the scientific advisors for the time and expertise that went into the peer reviewing process and to the team of young researchers whose enthusiasm and dedication saw the volume through the difficult stages preceding publication.
