Edited volumes seldom call for contributions in two different fields. By combining language and literature, two closely related disciplines, this volume hopes to bring together chapters presenting original research that focuses on the intersection of language and literature and how the teaching and use of the former construes classroom and societal reality and spurs linguistic and literary creativity. While the volume is broad in scope, it particularly welcomes papers that demonstrate how language transcends boundaries in education and literary creation and seek to cogently highlight in their analytical approach the intricacies of linguistic transformation.

Modern Migration: Breaking Mental Borders
Submission deadline: 31.7.2017
The notion of national borders is commonly seen as geographical boundaries that protect culture, language, land rights, and the well-being of those who live within. However, according to a UN study, the number of people living outside their birth place borders is growing faster than the world’s population, with over 244 million people living abroad. As a result of globalisation, these numbers are expected to increase as a result of a growing need for many to find work, study, or flee from war-torn areas. It appears that national borders are more permeable today than ever. Will the concept of borders known in the past change as it adapts to this new trend? Perhaps in the digital age issues surrounding migration is a matter of mental borders needing to be examined. And, by attempting to break mental borders, can some measure of world peace be gained?
Contributions are invited for an edited manuscript – Words: Description, Acquisition, and Pedagogy – to be published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.
Vocabulary, or the lexicon, is a strong predictor of academic success and language proficiency. Therefore, it is important for researchers and practitioners to better understand how vocabulary is acquired, represented in the mind, as well as learned in monolingual, bilingual, and multilingual environments. The manuscript will bring together recent research on the topic; the lexicon will be considered from multiple perspectives by theorizing the description of lexicon, lexical acquisition, and pedagogy.
