Call for Submissions

The Second Languages Intercultural Council publishes the academic journal entitled Notos. The goal of the Notos journal is to disseminate information about existing practices, programs, and resources in second languages and intercultural education. The publication also serves to enable Alberta teachers to become more aware of the issues and to gain knowledge, skills, and understanding in the areas of culture and second languages. 

To this end, a call for submissions is required in order to publish the next issue of Notos. If you have an unpublished article that fits the goals of this journal, please consider sending it to the editor for consideration. Articles will be peer reviewed. 

To submit your article for consideration, please send it to Dr. Megan Sénéchal at

Notos, in classical mythology was the personification of the South Wind.
