Following the success of the first conference on interdisciplinary approaches to language learning and teaching in 2012, and having acknowledged the necessity for addressing a wider scope of inquiry, the Department of English Language and Literature at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad is now organizing the 2nd Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Language Teaching, Literature and Translation Studies (LTLTS2-IA). The two-day event is scheduled to be held in the Faculty of Letters and Humanities on Tuesday and Wednesday, 6-7 October 2015.
Cross-cultural use of language in multimodal forms is a dynamic phenomenon which involves diverse challenges in relation to various environments. As traditionally-envisioned scholarly boundaries do not seem to fully serve the present-day requirements, the principal aim of this conference is to promote interdisciplinary research activities by encouraging prospective participants to move beyond discipline-specific approaches and take advantage of methodological and conceptual frameworks which can help facilitate addressing common problems.
Senior and junior scholars in languages, literature, education, area studies, history, theology, psychology, sociology, translation studies, intercultural communication, information technology, and other relevant fields in human and social sciences are cordially invited to contribute and participate in this academic event. The conference welcomes research reports on all languages, but abstracts and presentations should be in English or Persian.
