We hope to stimulate academic research and discussion around the theme of cognition, in relation to language (including language teaching), literature, translation and culture. In every aspect of our lives we make judgments and assessments and encounter judgments and assessments made by others, without necessarily examining closely the perspectives, methodologies or theoretical assumptions on which these judgments are based. What established procedures and canons of seeing and understanding govern the way we teach, the way we translate, or the direction of our research in any given area? Is there a need for these procedures or canons to be revised, modified or even abandoned altogether?

BFS Journal 17 is due out in January/Feburary.
The journal is a mix of articles and is keen to accept submissions from people who want to write about fantasy, horror and science fiction. Our focus is primarily the former, but our readers have interests across all three genres.
Academic articles for the BFS Journal should be between 2500 and 6000 words. We prefer nearer the former, as this is about the size of a conference paper. References in the text should be (Author, Date of Edition: Page Number) with a full publication listing for the bibliography given for each article at the end. Please don't use footnotes in your submissions.

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 48th annual conference. The conference will be held in Hilton Head, South Carolina from March 30 to April 1, 2017.
The 2017 theme is "Islands" and CEA invites papers and panels that address the idea of the island. How are islands in literature and film, as in life, places of desperate refuge and welcome escape? What respites do they provide? Are islands imagined utopias, or do they offer only barriers and isolation? Finally, is the study of composition, film, language, literature, and writing, a kind of island amidst the tempest of the current attack on the humanities?
The Byron Society of America, an affiliate organization of The College English Association, will have one guaranteed panel at the CEA's annual conference.
