SPELL is a publication of the Swiss Association of University Teachers of English (SAUTE). Established in 1984, it first appeared every second year and was published annually from 1994 to 2008. The new publication rhythm adopted in 2009 is that of three volumes every two years: two in 2009, one in 2010, two in 2011, one in 2012, and so on.

Volumes of SPELL contain carefully selected papers devoted to a topic of literary, linguistic and, broadly, cultural interest. All contributions are original and are subjected to external evaluation by means of a full peer-review process. Articles are usually by participants at the conferences mentioned, but the volume editors are free to accept or solicit further contributions.

SAUTE, the Swiss Association of University Teachers of English, was founded in 1947. It aims to promote and develop English studies in Switzerland. SAUTE brings together all those who take a professional interest in the academic study of English. The association provides a platform for discussing current developments in the field (for example during its biennial conferences). It is an academic market place, where information, ideas, and university teachers may be exchanged. It provides an opportunity for coordinating activities within Switzerland's academic communities. Finally, SAUTE participates in the activities of larger academic bodies such as the SAGW and ESSE (The European Society for the Study of English promotes international contacts.
