|Meeting Description:||The International Society for Language Studies, co-sponsored by Akita International University, is pleased to announce that we will hold a conference from June 13-15, 2014 at Akita International University, in Akita, Japan. The theme of the conference will be “A Critical Examination of Language and Society.”
About the Theme:
Language is more than the words that are communicated from one to another. Language represents our social and cultural identity in terms of our relationships with others, how we are connected to society, the power relationships between individuals or groups, among others. This conference is designed as a venue for individuals from all disciplines to come together and discuss language from a critical, interdisciplinary lens.
