LITERARIA
ISSN:   2229-4600
Editor(s):   Harpreet Kaur Bahri, Deepinder Singh Bahri

LITERARIA: An Intenational Journal of New Literature Across the World (ISSN 2229-4600) proposes that what characterises the study of English through the larger part of literature is its multidisciplinary and multicultural nature. That is to say, in the first place, that English is studied in most of the world as a subject made up, in a variety of ways, of a range of disciplines or sub-disciplines, including Literature, Theory, Area Studies, and the study of Culture – each term of which is itself plural in its conceptions and practices. ‘LITERARIA’, in this sense, would signify the multifaceted view of the object of study and its corollary would be the potential for dialogue between the (sub-) disciplinary approaches which construct it. To this end, rather than devoting individual issues to particular disciplines within English Studies, the editors are proposing a series of topics each of which may be addressed, in a dialogical manner, from a variety of disciplinary (and, ideally, interdisciplinary) points of view. This, we believe, has worked for the Literary Theory, and should work also in the more formally scholarly context of the LITERARIA: An International Journal of New Literature Across the World. LITERARIA is the journal of the English dedicated to providing a forum for innovative poetry, prose, drama, criticism and artwork from emerging and established writers and artists. Some basic areas are:

 

  • Aesthetic and Cultural Components
  • Cross-Border Inclusion
  • Cross-Cultural Encounters
  • Postcolonial Studies
  • Nativism/Native Influences
  • Diaspora Studies
  • Multiculturalism
  • Cyberpunk Literature
  • Translation Studies
  • Comparative Studies
  • Literary Movements
  • Literary Criticisms and Theories

Founder Editor:   Pradip Lahiri
Editor(s):   Pradip Lahiri

The purpose of launching this literary journal Literary Miscellany is to seek an access into the international academic, artistic, scholarly and philosophic fraternity that seeks to delve deep into the theories, trends, and practices of literature throbbing in animation in and around nations and states. The journal intends, with a view to imbibing the essence of literary art, to spread its wings across the spectrum of the global habitation.

 

Editorial board desires to bring to light well-written, original and meaningfully researched items on various segments of the classical and contemporary literature, encasing good articles on Critical Theories, Drama, Fiction, Literary Criticism, Poetry as well as assorted creative writings in the cosmic perspective.

 

Literary Miscellany wishes to provide a dedicated forum for disseminating knowledge and expertise on the subject of cross-textured heterogeneous literatures – written primarily in English -- seeking to encourage scrutiny and interpretation of hitherto expounded literary perceptions and tenets, including perceptive evaluation and analytical review of the pathfinders, working through the late 19th till the 20th century/contemporary literary movements.

 

The Journal stands to focus on the trends, patterns and filigrees of cross-cultural, multi dimensional literature in an ever-expanding experimental backdrop giving rise to exercises involving sparkling literary creations across the billowing seas.

 

Braving hail showers and storms LM holds its ground banking on the love and valued appreciation of members, well-wishers, scholars, critics and friends who stand by the journal through thick and thin.  The log cabin of LM may encounter weather variation, yet the cabin can always be diligently repaired, with neatly cleaned floor board remaining fixed and firm

 

LM salutes the rich global family of academics, artists, creative writers, scholars students and avid readers who take interest in the Journal, and also pledges to stay its course with their covetable affectionate support.

 

Literary Miscellany ventures to humbly approach some carefully selected scholars/academics/authors across the international literary corpus in order to invite them to enrich the journal ideally with their illuminating contributions, so much so that the student community in particular, and all interested readers at large -- requiring optimum exposure to the various branches/types of creative literature, literary theories and literary criticism that continue happening in the world today in spite of the onslaught of disasters and tribulations -- may be immensely benefited in various ways.

Communication Studies and Language Pedagogy
ISSN:   2347-2014
Founder Editor:   Alok Das
Editor(s):   Alok Das

Language, and therefore communication, is a unique and fascinating ability in humans. Yet, there remain many aspects of human language, speech and communication as totally unexplored. Exploring the realm of language and communication is crucial for understanding cognition, interaction, and culture. There is a need for knowledge within language, spoken and written communication, and ICT. Through current research in fields such as professional communication, Web-based language learning, communications technology and an ever-changing paradigm of language pedagogy, as well as gender and ethnicity, interdisciplinary efforts contribute towards developing contacts across languages and cultures.

                       

The coming together of the world has also meant a coming together of various different disciplines. Information revolution has brought about a revolution in the ways and means of human interaction today. Language and communication have become even more vital than ever as most of these interactions are increasingly taking place in a virtual world, across distances and cultures. Relentless pursuit of a commonality amongst people from diverse backgrounds has played a unifying role, which in turn though threatens our very diversity! More and more people are speaking one language, eating one food, using one currency, and watching one movie. In this scenario, it is indeed interesting, yet challenging to address the changing facets of human communication.      

 

Besides, English as a global language and its uses in intercultural communication, cultural, historical, and political dimensions of varieties of English around the world, experiential grounding in strategies for increasing interpretive and verbal communicative competence for a globalized world, are some of the areas defining the scope of this journal.

 

Further work on educational settings, classroom research, and language education is required to systematically measure the effectiveness of language teaching practices, in particular, in second-language acquisition. Interdisciplinary approaches to current challenges of teaching and education in multilingual settings are indeed relevant. Whether multilingualism is a profit or a problem for the area of education?

 

The core area of emphasis is around the scientific investigation of language, speech and communication. Empirical analysis should more fundamentally be aimed to elucidate how the process of language communication works. The goal is to understand the nature of linguistic structure, and how structural elements are coded/ decoded. In spoken communication, this pertains to how speech is produced and perceived by the listener. In sign languages, it pertains to the coding and interpretation of gesture. Speech language pathology explores the communication processes that unfold in the presence of a communication dissonance linked to language or communication impairment and the impact on individuals.

 

The Journal endears to feature a wide variety of development of research, applications and innovations on education and language that improve the teaching performance and systems that combine the education research findings and the teaching delivery. As the education advancement is progressing, challenges also surface. To anticipate the challenges, solutions need to be provided that could be applied to bridge the gap between education challenges and solutions from results of research. This journal can be used as an opportunity for teachers, researchers and participants to share their experiences and research results about all aspects of education advances. This will also provide solutions that can be adopted in the teaching and learning innovations, promoting research and sharing of empirical findings, placing points of inquiries in a historical and epistemological perspective.

 

Studies from a pragmatic and interpersonal point of view as relating to the communicative exchanges are very important. The choice of the appropriate utterances, the interpretation and negotiation of the message, and the interactants’ expectations are influenced by umpteen variables. To explore verbal interaction, we need to further ideas and recent developments that may help not only advance but also contribute to improve communication in professional settings and unify current studies.

 

The Journal aims at providing a variety of perspectives, especially studies covering cross-cultural communication, politeness and other social approaches. It intends to showcase relevant research and successful teaching practices, thereby bettering the educational experiences of language learners in the community by providing a comfortable environment that nurtures interaction between theory, research and practice.

 

The goal is to promote genuine discussion and cross-pollination between various disciplines and research traditions, their theories, methods, and data, and between researchers from different strands. Better understanding of interactions between different human groups is a major challenge today. The critique of the concept of culture has made significant contributions, including foregrounding ethnocentrism as a source of research bias across disciplines, incorporating power into cultural studies, and expanding scholarship on cultures beyond ethno-linguistically defined groups. Likewise, study of processes that transcend group divisions – globalization, empire, neocolonialism – has flourished. But, understanding mechanisms of interactions between cultures has not kept pace. Intercultural studies are hence due for reflection and refinement.

 

This journal’s strength would derive from the diversity of the research undertaken, with emphasis on the emerging research themes, developing cross disciplinary collaborations. Some relevant research fields pertaining to this journal, but not limited to, are:

 

  • Business Communication
  • Language Learning and Teaching
  • Communications Technology
  • Language and/ in Technology
  • Soft Skills as Communication Strategies
  • Media Communications
  • Second Language Acquisition
  • Education Management/ Language Education
  • Curriculum Development
  • Social Search
  • Teaching with Technology
  • Online Classes

 

Teaching across the curriculum, teaching languages for specific fields outside of the humanities (engineering, medicine, environmental studies, etc.)


International Journal of Mind, Brain & Cognition
ISSN:   0976-3112
Founder Editor:   Ramesh Kumar Mishra
Editor(s):   Harpreet Kaur Bahri, Deepinder Singh Bahri

International Journal of Mind, Brain & Cognition (ISSN 0976-3112) is a biyearly journal for the multidisciplinary study of minds and other intelligent systems. It seeks to present state of the art research in the broad areas of COGNITIVE SCIENCE, NEUROSCIENCE, LINGUISTICS, COMPUTER SCIENCE, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE as well as from the HUMANITIES where facts blended with theory explore the workings of the mind-brain and throw new light on our cognitive behavior. The study of human mind, from the neurophysiological as well as computational perspectives, has given us exciting data about our own inner mental life and also how we – with our bodies and brains – interact with the environment and cognize. With development of theoretical frameworks in several disciplines along with sophisticated brain mapping techniques, it is now possible to test hypotheses concerning the workings of the mind and eventually find answers to more difficult questions like consciousness and several specific cognitive mechanisms. This journal will provide a platform for research that integrates disciplinary frameworks and proposes theoretical as well as experimental work that is, wherever possible, truly multidisciplinary.

 

As an international journal of COGNITIVE SCIENCE, this journal will showcase research of the best quality that stands solidly on well-developed theoretical foundations and faces some of the challenging research tasks. Full length research articles that seek rigorous answers to questions of mind-brain interaction and hence cognition and thought-provoking theoretical articles that challenge received views and explore new options will receive priority. Research that is merely confirmatory will be given less importance. The journal will also publish careful book reviews in these domains. All submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and will maintain highest standards of quality.

 

The following kinds of articles are appropriate for the journal: (a) theories or theoretical analyses of cognitive processes and brain theory; (b) experimental studies relevant to theoretical issues in cognitive science; (c) computational models of neural and cognitive processes and (d) discussions of new problem areas or methodological issues in cognitive science.

 

The journal will publish four categories of articles. Regular articles have a word limit of 10000 words. Brief reports have a target length of about 4,000 words. Letters to the editor are expected not to exceed 1,000 words, and may include commentaries on articles, responses to commentaries, and discussion items of general relevance to the cognitive science community. Book reviews should not exceed 1,000 words.
